I ran the Doug Nash 4+1 5-speed in my 73 RA-IV 455HO
Firebird with a missing tooth on a forward
transmission gear for at least a year or more before I
discovered the missing (broken) tooth when I drained
the trans fluid and found the tooth stuck to the
magnetic drain plug. You can be SURE there was a lot
of torque on THAT gear! Must be there is enough
contact between multiple teeth for things to survive
for a-while, aya. (lucky too I think :)
