Rock Auto has lots of choices ...

Lots of choices on Rock Auto ...

All have either steel or cast iron crank gears ... the cam gears vary ...

Cheapest ... metal center with phenolic teeth

Complete cam gear phenolic

Complete gear aluminum

Most expensive ... steel / cast iron gear

I tried to read up on this. It "seems" people think steel (or aluminum) gears last longer but make more noise.

I am not sure if this is true so I wanted to check with you guys.

Thanks .... Mike
