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.

I have a 406 SBC, with an MSD distributor. I also run a Lunati mechanical roller cam. I have replaced the bronze dist gear several times. I 'thought' it would be a good time to swap it again as PM. I noticed that there is a new option, an 'iron, melonite coated' gear. I called Tech Support and this was the latest and greatest gear. I was surprised when I pulled the dist, I had a 'plastic' gear on it! I had completely forgotten about that. ha ha The plastic gear had no wear that I could see.
