setup gear

  1. M

    Help 10 Bolt 8.5” ring and pinion pattern

    Has been a minute since my last rear gear setup, and Im having a brain fart. Do you all see any issue with this gear mesh setup? It is going to be a street with occasional abuse. 😬 Reused the factory pinion shim which is .036 Everything else is new. Back lash is at .009 3.55 US Gear. Thanks
