Determining Diametral Pitch, Center Distance - October 2016

The article "Determining Diametral Pitch, Center Distance" appeared in the October 2016 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
I need help determining the diametral pitch needed to achieve the closest center-to-center distance for 2 spur gears. The 1st gear is a 34-tooth and the 2nd gear is a 28-tooth. The center-to-center distance between the gears needs to be as close to 2 1⁄8" as possible.
