    Very minor pitting on one crown wheel tooth..- is that a problem?

    Gentlemen,

    I connection with my rear axle rebuild I managed to source a used 3.67 ring & pinion which seller claimed was checked and in good condition. I took the crown wheel off the carrier and gave it a good cleaning. During inspection I noticed what I would consider very minor pitting on the tip of a single tooth, otherwise it looks to be in good condition (layman terms).

    Due to my lack of knowledge with this type of parts, I kindly ask the professors on the forum to tell me if I should be concerned. Pinion looks to be fine.

    Cheers.

    Look's O.K. to me. Does the pinion gear look good? When you do your pattern setup you may find that it's not the main wear area.
