CORRECT PATTERN (NEW GEARING)
Correct gear pattern for used pinion and ring gear is clear of toe and centers
evenly along face of gear tooth, but can be any length or shape and is
acceptable as long as pattern does not run off gear tooth at any point.
Correct gear pattern for used pinion and ring gear does not have to match
PATTERN A (correct pattern for new gearing).
If new pinion and ring gear are used, tooth pattern should match PATTERN A.
If not, check patterns B thru E to find one that looks close to ring gear tooth
pattern, then do appropriate step 54, 55, 56, or 57.
53. IF TOOTH CONTACT IS LIKE PATTERN A, DO NOT ADJUST BACKLASH. GO TO STEP 58.
