Looks like when the shafts popped it took out a few teeth on the R&P also
Damn Chris you make sure you do it right!!
The fact that there are two groupings of broken teeth seems interesting. Chicken or the egg?
Sucks on the breakage though
The wear pattern is way off. Probably why the tooth breakage.
eh, its the front, and only a couple teeth. I'd prolly run it til it got worse....your welded in teh front anyways, not like a few broken teeth will mess up a detroit or something.
No way you can be serious
Haha, idano. I don't know that much about SFA's, i have just heard of a few guys with 14FF's on here continuing to run with a few broken teeth, with no major problems. My advice was from a $$$ standpoint based on those ppl.
then why post if you don't know much about sfa's??
A chance for me to learn something.... Could somebody explain to me what is wrong with the wear pattern on this. I understand the process of gear set up and getting a pattern with marking compound and what it should look like but other than being a little too close to the inside of the ring gear (I don't know if that is deep or shallow) I don't see what is way off
Look at the three teeth above the two broken teeth on the right side. See the line, notice that line is where the teeth were broken off. It looks as if the pinion wasnt deep enough putting too much pressure on the outside of the ring gears.
ahhhh..... gotcha now.... I was looking at it wrong. Thanks for the clarification
There is a bunch of rust on the ring gear, so unless you let it set outside after removing it for a few days I would guess there was a lot of water inside the diff. The water probably took out the bearings (they probably at least have some slop in them) which in turn let the carrier and/or pinion slop around and thus causing the funking wear patterns. The wear patterns don't look like anything I've seen, they are way to big.....going from one end of the teeth to the other, telling me something was moving around.
weld the chunks or just build up weld it, and call it a day.
good point, ill shut my mouth.
Sorry it just seemed fitting.
Looks like time to upgrade to a 10 bolt. I have one waiting for you. I think I would be willing to do an even trade even if you do have bad r&p. .
Wow this sure did take a turn south haha.
The wear pattern is a little off but not so far that the tooth contact was on the outside of the tooth. I did not setup the gears, I bought my axles with them in there.
There is zero rust on the ring gear, I think its just the flash reflecting off the gear oil that is on there.
ANYWAYS I have some new Yukons here and they should be in, in a day or so.
I'll take your word on it......but it sure does look like rust in the pictures. I'm also not sure how you could chip off just a portion of the tooth like that unless something is moving.
