Default Spur/Pinion mesh on B4

Im getting a drive train noise from my B4. When i dissconnect the pinion gear and spin the tranny everything feels smooth and normal but when i put the pinion back on and set the mesh it seems tight in some spots and loose in others , icant get a consistant mesh arond the spur. So does anyone have any ideas to correct this. is my spur input shaft slightly bent. i just put a new spur gear on it.

pretty common to have some very minor difference in gear mesh at verying spots around the spur that is ok. Most likely your transmission is due for an overhaul. Get yourself a topshaft(new black coated gear),diff gear and idler gear. I do this at every diff rebuild. Guaranteed to be nice and quiet again.
