Location of good hand-rolled contact pattern for new gear set is toward toe of gear tooth and in center
between top and bottom of tooth.
Location of good hand-rolled contact pattern of used gear set must match wear pattern in ring gear. Con-
tact pattern will be smaller than wear pattern.
During tooth contact pattern checks, backlash can be adjusted within specification limits, if needed, to
change pattern location.
Compare contact pattern with examples shown.
If contact pattern requires adjustment, perform disassembly steps 16 through 21.
Perform steps 23 through 28 and 53 through 55.
To correct high contact pattern, decrease thickness of shim pack (22).
To correct low contact pattern, increase thickness of shim pack (22).
