OK so I was trying to make the posting a little humorous. :) I set up some gears for a buddy of mine while the axle is out. The pattern loks good with .011 of lash. I figured I would share some pics.

Looks good pattern wise, but I would tighten it up just a little on the back lash. Bring the back lash to under 0.010" but not lower than 0.0065". If you want to do a super job, take a look at backlash variation (difference between max and min backlash between different spots on the ring gear). If it is under 0.002" you're damn good.

Depending upon where you measure the most variation was .001. I believe I will stick to .011. I hear what you are saying and appreciate the feedback. .011 is dead smack in the middle of spec. These gears grow when heated. I always get nervous about going too tight. With my luck the gears would bind when they get hot. LOL.

Awesome, looks like you got the job done well!
