I don't see how you can get the same lead angle when diameter changes - something else would also have to change, either NDP or starts. Are you sure the gear's angle hasn't changed? Or maybe the shafts are not at 90 degrees?
If the gear is not throated, the worm lead can be a little sloppy, but a degree change seems like a lot.
