Default John Deere "D" steering sectors

Just wondering what year John Deere "Ds" changed from the fine tooth steering sector to the coarse tooth sector ?

A friend and I between us have 4 sets of steering gear worm and sectors, three are coarse tooth and one is fine tooth. I have what was originally a spoker, 1925 D with a coarse tooth steering and a parts 27 with coarse tooth, he has a 28 with a coarse tooth sector and a parts axle and a few other bits that are fine tooth. It's my understanding that the finer tooth steering was used first and that the coarse tooth came later, just need to find out if this "IS" correct or not and what time the change occurred so we can put the right parts in the correct place.

Thanks Blokes
Graham

The D58R steering segment gear, which was the "fine tooth" one, was used from 30400 - 95900. The "coarse tooth" segment gear, D1535R, was used from 95901 - 109943. Each segment gear was also used with different matching worm gears.

Thanks Luke, Ronm and Dave !

I think that's all I needed to know for the moment, it gives us an idea of what we have and how to proceed.
