I'm seeing something shiny... is it aluminum.... or maybe bronze....??? The spirit world is not clear on that.

Your fiber gear looks a lot better than mine did.

At least with the valve in block design you don't have to worry about valves hitting the pistons when that happens.

I've always suspected that fiber timing gears can contribute to broken cranks.

Since the timing gear also controls ignition timing, if the fiber gear strips it seriously changes your valve and ignition timing, fires the plug at the wrong time, tries to make the crank go in a direction it doesn't want to go, and BAM! Broken crank.

Yes, the Force is weak with that one :-)

Cameron,

That has always been my belief as well.

I think the future is now! You might want to get a new cam nut while you are at it.
What condition is the crank and generator gear in?

I could have told you that would happen.

My mind is a medium.

Or maybe it's a small.

I ordered an aluminum timing gear, cam nut, gaskets, etc. on Monday and they should be delivered tonight.
Guess what I'll be doing tomorrow night.

In this situation, replacing one gear only in an engine with some miles on it, do you install a 'stock' or 'oversize' aluminum cam gear? One vendor suggests a longer-lived geartrain will be had with 'oversized' cam gear in a worn engine?

"Camshaft Large spiral cut timing gear, Aluminum, .005 OVERSIZE.
If you are only replacing your large timing gear, you probably will need this oversize gear. If the gear lash between the gears is too great it will cause both gears to wear much faster."

Which gear & how do you know which one to use? jb

How did you get the front cover off with the crankshaft pulley still on the crankshaft?

If you need a hand give me a holler, just did this to the coupe a couple of weeks ago.

Ken,

Unless it's excellent, and it does not appear to be, you might consider buying a new generator gear too. It will make for a better fit, create less noise, and last longer.

Wow. Just think, a Model T only has 21 gears total ( if I counted right )
