Default I dont think it is the gear mesh.

Well, I have recently gotten a gallon through my truck and I was thinking it was time for a new sleve. Well After thruoly checking it, I decided I can go alot longer with out changing it. Well, when I was mounting the engine back on the truck, I noticed that the tanny in the back was a little messed up. It did not look like a mesh problem because all the teeth were not striped. In fact, none of them were striped a few just were dented or somewhat chiped.

I don't think that it is the gear mesh but I do think a piece of sand or small pebble got in the gear and messed it up. What do you think?

Is this a serious problem or somthing to change in time?

The worst that could happen if you leave it alone is a stripped spur. I would recommend replacing it sooner than later, just so you don't screw anything else up. As for a pebble or something getting in there, its possible. I think however that there was an issue with your clutch bell coming loose or something to that effect. That is how I chewed up my spur a few weeks ago.

1st of all u replace the sleeve and piston when the engine fails to pass compression tests and the usual tricks wont breath fire in it

2nd of all replace the gears now or replace them l8er when they strip either way it goes ur replacing the gears
