Hi Gents,

Im after some of your expert advice,
I bought a crownwheel and pinion from a member on this site, to be fair he did say there was some slight pitting on the pinion on 3 of the teeth.
I've got to the stage of putting everything back together but i would like your advice on whether to use the pinion or not.

Hopefully the pictures will work and are clear enough.......

I had a similar problem last year on a 3.2fd. The pitting wasn't quite as bad as on yours, but I turned it round and it seems to be doing okay.
Got us to Italy and back anyway !

thanks for your replies,
the crown wheel looks fine, no pitting.

I think im going to try it and see what happens... I don't think I'll be doing bundles of before the engine is out again.

When re-fitting should i have the pitted teeth facing up or down?

Up - you want the undamaged face mating with the crownwheel while doing the majority of the hard work (going forwards).
