I tried checking the pattern with the prussian blue on the ring gear teeth and they were meshing on the outer half of the teeth. My book said to put the prussian blue on the pinion teeth, which is why I had done it that way the first time.

kinda looks like your not that far out. i would wipe the pinion clean from blueing and just coat the crown gear lightly and try it again. rock the crown gear back and forth , where the blueing is removed that would be the contact point. should invest in a dial indicator, would be handy. it is hard to guage thousandth's by feel but after a while you get in the ball park. you want the pattern centred towards the toe of gear ( narrow end) as under load it want to move towards the heel(wider end). may as well have a better look at things.

Thanks, I tried it again and then decided I would just put the tractor together and see if it makes noise. I figured that I would be just as likely to mess it up worse by trying to fix it and end up having to tear it down again anyway so I might as well try it this way first. Zach
