MSD's high-grade steel distributor gears are burnished for a smooth, scuff-free finish, and are machined for precise gear mesh. Excessive clearance causes timing fluctuation throughout the rpm range, resulting in lost horsepower, so MSD also designed these gears for tighter mesh between the camshaft and distributor drive gears.
