There is a shim behind the large bearing on the pinion.
Mine was damaged when pinion broke. The shim has three evenly spaced tabs on it that hold it centered on the pinion shaft.
Is there a standard gauge thickness for this model?
Where can I purchase this shape shim?

No, not standard. It is part of setting the depth and gear meash with the ring gear. There are different thickness shims for this.

You need to buy a shim kit to get them
