The mating pattern of the new gears is very important and can greatly impact the longevity of the parts. This yellow paint is included in the master install set that JT's Parts & Accessories sent us and is used to check the mating pattern. After applying the paint you rotate the gears a few times and the matting pattern becomes visible. This pattern is just about perfect, being located in the center of the face of the teeth.
