    so an experienced gear installer would be able to do that? i mean, it's not impossible to do? they wouldn't howl or anything if he does a good job?

    Used gears are fine as long as the backlash is set correctly and any reputable mechanic should be able to do it. Watch out for pitting or any other scars on the teeth surface.

    I have bought and sold quite a few used gear sets and have never had any problems.
