Re: Gear pattern check

It looks as if your not putting tension on the pinion while running the pattern with paint. Pretty vague pattern. However I did look at it pretty close, it seems as though the pinion is 'slightly' deep. Maybe back it off a tad. Ring gear looks spot on.

I would wrap a rag around the pinion and have someone hold it to put tension on it. before doing any adjustments, and re-run the paint to see where your at.

When you want to be someone you drive a lifted JK, when you already know who you are you drive an old XJ.

Re: Gear pattern check

Thanks for the quick reply and assessment. It is a bit light. I did my best to get the pattern to show up. I always put drag on the carrier but maybe that is wrong. I'll try it on the pinion. I'll make another adjustment and run it again tomorrow.

Re: Gear pattern check

I'm still learning, but those look pretty good from what I see.

Re: Gear pattern check

It probably won't make any noise but its too deep. Remove pinion depth shims.

Yep.

It will prob work but is still slightly deep (pinion). If its still apart, wouldn't hurt removing a few thousands on the shims.
