You have to remember a Motive gear will never look like the picture, I don't think the lap them as much as US gear or Richmond do so on the first set up they don't look great. What does the coast side look like I only saw one picture of it?

I set up at least 4-5 a month for a local speed shop and none of the Motive gears they send me are a perfict paturn. The US or Richmond on the other hand set up great, set the pinion depth at their spec put in .008-.012 backlash and run it. The pinion depth on a Motive is a starting point for me as the paturn looks pretty bad when you set it with their #.
