Here you can clearly see the difference in spline length between the long-pinion 2nd generation 10.25-inch Sterling (left) and the short-pinion 1st generation 10.25-inch Sterling. The splines differ by about 1/2 inch, and the shorter pinion was known to wobble and cause failure of the ring-and-pinion.
