ALL ON you, you want a nice ride with some deflection etc RUBBER. If you want a tight ride feeling the road more than Urethane.

I have all Urethane on the SS 1971 Monte Carlo. If you hit a pretty good chuck hole it will jar the crap out of you and hop the rear too.

Jim,

Finally got back to it. The original pinion washer was 43. I replaced with a 40 thousandths service washer. Attached are the results. Backlash is still around 8 thousandth.

How does it look??? The service washers in my kit will only allow me to go down by 10 thousands (thinnest) if I need to reduce more.

Weird it looks too shallow on the coast side and too deep on the drive side. .040 looked better.
Open the backlash up to .010

Rubber or urethane

All on you and the ride you want. Rubber will give you factory ride and less feel of bumps.... Urathane wil lcontrol the torque bettr but you will feel the road more in sharp bumps. Jim

Pattern, I think you have it. How does it feel ...Close your eye and just spin it both ways... does it feel equally smooth? Looks good as a used gear can. Jim

See how the pattern kind of covers the whole tooth. It is light everywhere not a super hard pattern swipe as much at the top or bottom area.

Now run it and just do a short run to start in case anything might not have been assemble correctly...Work your way into confidence. give a few days progressively getting longer and harder. check for leaks and have fun this summer. :)

Can you see what I am seeing? Just trying to help everyone see the pattern how spread out it is over the whole tooth and feel the smoothness of the spin. You can see from the other pattern how hard it was hitting in just one area. NOW sometimes that can be all you can do with some gear sets that have issues.... yours should be pretty good. Will see and hear. :) Jim
