Hmmm looking for opinions on what may be causing this wear on these two pinion gears.
Received new pinion gears.
Fitted to motor, tested in blaster and was a bit screechy.
Pulled motor out and noticed wear on pinion top.
Pulled gearbox down, re shimmed whole box and did bevel to pinion height.
Re test, sounds a lot better. Check pinion and wear is worse .
Now the motor is a baby frankentorque and will rip your fingers off no problems. I can feel it’s twisting in the grip as I fire. There’s room in the grip for it to twist.
Now I have the daddy frankentorque in the dsg but the motor in the grip is quite tight, pinion is fine.
So do you think the twisting is throwing the bevel to pinion out and somehow causing that unusual wear?
