Problem coming? I'd say it already arrived. Hopefully the repair will be covered.

I would also like to see test results from a certified metallurgist. Just stating trans has improper hardened gears caused trans failure and OP's dad said so,where is the proof? Maybe improper shifting is at fault.At this point who knows.Hope OP has better luck with his Baker trans.

Second one I've seen reported here in about two years. The last one was due to insufficient hardening.

isnt it a constant mesh transmission? Shifting causing that bad a problem doesnt seem that likely.

That's what My dad's work does He's a engineer. So not a made up story. the shaft is going to be given to my friend who is a product development engineer at Harley Idc i'm fixing it my way
and if I get called full of **** oh well. you can tell by looking not a miss shift be more than a couple teeth. I have blown up a lit of **** racing over the years

As if the Chinese hacks who made those gears even know what that test is, or give a f***, for that matter.
