Default gear mesh problem

hey guys,

my gear mesh has been good for about 2 months, so i took my engine out to clean it the other day and when i put it back it i thought it was as close as it was before but i ran it and stripped the 1st gear spur gear, so i had another one and made it a tighter mesh and it ran for about half tank and then they started to tear up the gear ... whats causeing this?? and is there a gear mesh base line?

Us a sheet a paper to set the mesh. Plus check your clutch it may be getting too hot. Parts do wear check your gaps regurly. And draging drive train can do the same.
Oh and check your bell. It may have a lose gear or pull on it and see if it is crossing gears and rechim it if it is

Your problem may that one or both clutchbell bearings
are worn out. They take alot of abuse and should be
checked often.
