Crane Cams offers a variety of precision-machined, steel distributor gears for people using steel roller camshafts. These steel distributor gears feature a modern heat-treating and manufacturing process that makes them compatible with steel cams. Roller cams are made of either induction-hardened or carburized steel. Neither of these materials is compatible with the stock distributor gears. In the past, bronze distributor gears were used, but for street applications, the bronze gears wear at an excessive rate and have to be replaced on a regular basis. Crane Cams now makes it possible to use a steel distributor gear that provides an OEM-style lifespan without damaging the cam.

As usual Summit comes through again. Broke down at Hot August Nights and Summit Racing had what I needed in stock. Crane Cams components are top Quality and I had no problem putting their gear on an MSD Distributor.

Must have for roller cams

If you are running a roller cam, hydraulic or otherwise you need a steel or bronze distributor gear. This one fits the MSD pro billet distributor for my application and should last forever. Bronze gears don't. An iron gear like the one that came on the distributor will grind down, ruin your timing and deposit metal into your oiling system. 4 stars because it's pricey. ...read more
