Transmission gears

Asked by 253SlumericanB Sep 16, 2018 at 02:53 PM about the 1994 Suzuki Sidekick JX 2-Door 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm currently in the midst of rebuilding the transmission in
my 1994 4x4 Suzuki Sidekick, and I'm hoping that you're
able & willing to shed some light on a question I have.

Once I got the transmission opened up, I noticed that in the
lower housing component, the main drive (or 4th gear) on
the countershaft (or cluster shaft) has two different tooth
configurations that are separated by a gap/groove (it looks
like the gear is cleaved into 2 disproportionate sections).
The skinnier of the two has 34 teeth and the wider has
36....and they don't line-up. (See attached photo.)

Is this supposed to be this way?... and if so, would you
mind explaining to me the purpose of this so I have a better
understanding of how it works?
