1977 Evinrude/Johson Lower Unit Rebuild Answered

I had a blown forward and pinion gear that I replaced last season. The rebuild worked for only a month until it destroyed both gears again. Did I possibly miss something on the rebuild that could of caused this? Incorrect shimming? or a high idle? Any help is appreciated.
