I'm baaaack!

The new case QP sent is spot-on with < 0.001" runout and everything went together perfectly. I needed a 0.029" shim in the clutches and ended up with 0.033". My original pinion shim was 0.020". To get the called for 1.028" pinion depth I would have needed for over 0.060", so I started with 0.033". Set at 0.008" backlash and this is what I ended up with on my 1st attempt. Pix in order are drive - spot #1, drive - spot #2, coast - spot #1, coast - spot #2. Pattern seems a bit ambiguous, maybe cause the gears are new. Am I OK?
