USA Standard is a good gearset, and absolutely fine for guys like us. I like the look of run D. Well done bud.
I am hoping someone could chime in on this one. Should I err on the shallow side of backlash(still in spec) because there will be some 'shaving' or break in of the gear mesh?I found that there was a variance of roughly ~.004" in the runout of the ring gear. I am not sure if I am using that term correctly. Basically the height of the teeth 'wobbles' ever so slightly as the gear rotates around. It is a USA Standard Gear sourced set, that is not a premium level ring gear. I'm not convinced that this level of variance is even an issue. I would think that some of this variance will work itself out in the break-in period.
Does anyone know if this is something that works itself out during the break-in period?
Thanks supamaing. Yeah, I did know that they were connected to Yukon in some way.. Just didn't know how off they'd be.USA Standard is a good gearset, and absolutely fine for guys like us.
Well, good thing I got some more marking compound and the weather is letting up for the next couple of days. I'm gonna try it a couple of more times to try as you suggest. I appreciate the guidance bud.I think a couple of thousands run out will be acceptable on the ring gear. From your runs, I would try between .075 and .080 on the inner pinion depth. I would rather be a little deep, cause the natural tendency is for the gears to move apart.
After looking back at run 'shiggles', I'm thinking it won't. But I'll give it another couple of go's.It may bring the coast side more toward center.
Teamwork makes the dream work...You are an RCH from perfect. Kudos.
It came from Sierra Gear and AxleBut that is from the manufacture, so they should know.
I was under the impression that center-ing both sides is what I was aiming for. With the coast side of the teeth not changing for the most part, I was focused on just centering the drive side and calling it done.Had you not shown us shiggles. I may not have suggested it. But they tell you to make big jumps at first then dial it in.
Yup I get ya maing! Not trying to ruffle feathers bud, just trying to understand better.. I do value your opinion, and appreciate the mind flossing.Hey bro, I'm with you, center the drive is most important. I was just commenting on the fact the manufacturer allows it at the ends.
