There is no way to tell by turning the pinion. The only way to accurately measure backlash is by setting up a dial indicator like the one in the picture that I posted. When you check backlash you MUST hold the pinion COMPLETELY still. If the pinion moves the slightest bit then your measurement will be wrong.
