Default Is This Normal Countershaft Wear (Pics) - Added a Few More

First time poster, but I've used this forum for information for years!

I'm trying to figure out if this wear showing on my countershaft is normal.



It looks odd to me because I don't see any obvious wear on the driven gears on the main shaft.



Thanks in advance guys.

This is not bad wear. I see contact wear on both drive and driven members . these appear to be the 1st and 2nd members so they would not be the highest wear gears from normal operation.

I greatly appreciate the feedback! And finally some good news!!!

I realized the reflection off the adjacent tooth appears a bit like a wear pattern on some of those pics, so I took a couple with a flashlight shining on them for good measure.

Looks good still. Those marks are from the gear processing not wear.
