Gear Marking Fluid

I'm fairly new to working with rear ends, but i want to change the gear set in my T-bucket. I read several book, articles, etc. and changed them out. Now for the problem, to set the lash i ask the guy working the local parts counter for something to put on the gears to check them and he sold me "Prussian Blue". Used it, but i can't really tell much about the contact pattern. Is "Prussian Blue" what i should be using? Any help would be appreciated.

What you want is titanium dioxide. If you go to a Ford parts counter they will have it, just ask for gear pattern marking compound. The stuff comes in a little lead tube about two inches long and a little of it goes a long way. It makes the best white patterns you have ever seen. I had no luck with prussian blue either.

Mail order and most high performance places sell "gear marking compound". I have used Desitin and A&D ointments. Zinc oxide It worked for me.
