ring and pinion experts?

Hello I am setting up a Motive gear ring and pinion in the dana 44 of my scout II. I have the spent the last 16 hours on this and am ready to buy a new set looking for opinions.... My problem is this:

-No matter how deep or shallow the pinion depth is or the backlash is set I get gear noise like a (Grrrr) sound every time the *same 3 or 4 gears on the pinion* are contacting the ring on the drive side.

-I have made every adjustment possible to eleminate this but it will not go away. Personally I have a feeling I have a bad set of gears......

-I bought them new and put 500 miles on them with the same very slight vibration at cruising speed. I feel this vibration is coming from this issue.....

-Anyone else have this noise at the same spot on pinion gears when setting them up? It only makes this noise in the one spot.
