I need advice re the difference in drivability between a 10 and 11 tooth pinion gear? Diff has a damaged 11 tooth. I have a good 10 tooth in the parts bucket.
Use it or wait until I get a good 11 tooth?

It depends on your type of driving. I switched from an 11 to a 10 in our Fordor, and it was a good move.

Most T'ers who has repaired a rear axle and bought a new set of gears would have a decent 11 tooth pinion extra for you since it's mostly the ring gear that takes the beating in a used set. If it's for the '23 roadster pick up in your profile, I wouldn't recommend anything but a 11 tooth. 10 tooth pinions are best for heavy Fordors and hacks in mountainous areas.

How's the landscape in your area? Mountains, flatland or just mixed with hills?

I have to agree with the last two posts. I went the other way and changed my Runabout from a 10 tooth to an 11 tooth. It was a good move in my mixed terrain area.

Roger, yes it's for my '23 Roadster. No challenging hills in this neck of the woods.

Unless you have an overdrive you'd best stick with the 11 tooth.
If you are using an old original Warford then definitely go with 10 tooth.
