I don't have experience with straight cut bevel gears, but I do have experience with the curved ones in my Mustang. I would agree, set it to where the Prussian Blue pattern looks like what the book says it should be, and then just run it. If the pattern is good, it should "run in", even if the gears are old and worn. It won't ever likely be silent, but you sure won't hurt anything if the pattern looks good. The only exception to that would be if the pinion, or the ring gear, is bent, and if it were, a dial indicator would tell you that in a matter of minutes. It would have to be several thousandths off, like .002 to .003 of runout, to make much difference on a carrier that big. If less than that with a good pattern, run it!
