richmond patterns

I also found some nice examples of actual gear patterns instead of illustrated pictures like everyone always shows. I think my pattern falls in between the second and the last one shown. What do you think?

Also, my pattern seems to look close to the second and the last example shown here:

You will notice it says to either decrease pinion depth as in example #2 or to increase backlash as in the last one. My contact is fairly centered though, they show them closer to the tow than mine. Thoughts? I am at a loss what move to make next. I am thinking go for maximum allowable backlash, it's at 10-11-1/2 depending on where I check it. I would imagine you can go a tad over max if it's within .002" in a couple spots.

Edited in:
And here is another pattern link, this guy went through about the same amount of effort as I did and his pattern ended up looking like mine. Maybe some are just not going to be perfect?
