Flutes on 1956 tank

Re: Naughty Gearbox

Only ever used matched gearsor originals in box and never found any wear lines very fine or not. I would suggest it's a function of the epicyclic profile and how well it was machined and matched and Chris is absolutely corect about modern gears. I just accept the characteristics of my old Burman gea...
