Well at least you've got a project to work on now and a chance to learn some new things. I assume you'll need some kind of alingnment bar to make sure the spindle is straight. Right?
lol! Well....being that I welded it and not you....chances are good it will not crack !How pissed are you going to be when it cracks on the first run? Lol

When I doubled the shim stack thickness, it looked near identical. When I only put the thinnest shim, it looked identical. Does not seem to matter what I really do the pattern comes out the same. I have pulled the pinion off at least 15 times trying different shims and adjusting the backlash.Looks too deep to me. I would tighten up the backlash too. Try to get it down in the .005 - .008 range.
