Get on ringpinion.com they give you detailed instructions and photos on correct gear tooth patterns.

From what I can tell from the photos supplied, your drive looks fine, coast looks off. Try adding another pinion shim.

looks ok. the coast looks off. it should be like the top half of an oval in the center. yours is kinda triangular shaped out the the end. It would be ok to drive, might make a little noise when you let off the gas
