Does anyone know of a reference showing pictures of wear paterns on spiral bevel gear teeth and providing interpretations?
I would like to know if the pattern I see on a right angle drive gear set indicates improper face contact or backlash setting, gear misalignment, errors in gear manufacture or other geometric defects in the gearbox.
AGMA doesn't seem to have any references specific to spiral bevel gears and their peculiar geometry problems.
