hey guys
the 13 tooth bevel gear on my savage diffs keeps breaking, snapping one or two teeth off the gear. It happened 3 times now, always in the rear diff. Do any of you have this problem, or any ideas how to strenghten it? Is there a heavy-duty version of that gear? thanks

Barney: Is it, or is it you girls can't admit that you have a problem?

are you using robinson racing spur and pinion set?

if you land hard on the rear end all the time it is possable to snap a tooth, especially if the slipper is tight

make sure the bearing is not moving around, or that the diff case(part#85045-3) is not cracked, make sure the screw that holds the diff casses together are not striped

im havin similar spyder gear assembly slipped a couple times and then tooth by tooth, it broke...i couldnt figure it out when i had to bump the truck to get it moving. but i was lucky that i had the 4 gear diffs cuz i just slipped my original gears in and then sent 'er up the street again. i found that the spyder gear shafts were eating into the factory diff cups on an angle, so they pressed onto one ballcup and slipped on the other ballcup. im thinking about taking my broken gears and welding them so ive got $0 Lockers , but im not sure if its the right kind of steel for welding though.
i guess il soon find out...
