back in the 60s/70s I've installed used gear sets in the larger GM 10 bolts and 12 bolts and never had a problem with the new pattern that was going to be established or after that new pattern was established.Never experienced unusual excessive gear wear.Looking back,I think it was 99% luck and 1% skill,but I always made sure pinion depth and gear lash were within the recommended range.
