One of the first requirements when installing a new or replacement steel roller cam is the addition of a bronze distributor gear. This part is necessary in the prevention of wear and tear, don't ruin your new steel roller cam by using an incompatible distributor gear.
A stock cast iron gear will not be compatible with a steel camshaft, the use of the stock gear can potentially cause severe damage to internal components. COMP Cams gears are each machined from AMPCO-45 extruded aluminum bronze with 5% Nickel added for increase durability and a product that is much less likely to fail. AMPCO-45 extruded aluminum bronze possess a non-sparking property, making it an ideal material to be used for internal mechanical components where sparking would be a potential problem, such as in the engine bay of your Mustang.
These gears feature the use of an impressive high-strength tooth design that helps the gear to resist the negative effects of wear even when used with high pressure oil pumps. These extra tough gears are the perfect answer when you are in need of higher mechanical properties.
