Nice upgrade!

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

MSD-8561
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. But then, I only drive this car < 100 miles/year. Nice part!!! ron ...read more

Funny look but works

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

MSD-8561
Bought this gear for my new hydraulic roller cam. Wanted melonized steed instead of composite. This gear at MSD is classified for marine engines, do. not know the difference. But it works also in my 400 cui SBC. The look is funny but it works. On the picture the right one is the melonized gear, the other one is the standard MSD Iron gear.

MSD Gear for Roller Cams

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

MSD-8561
I had bought a used BBC 502 and discovered that the MSD distributor did not have the hardened gear, which had the teeth all chewed up. Bought this new hardened gear, which was easy to install on the distributor. We have done a break-in with the supplied lube, and will need to check it in a few hundred miles, so too early to tell, but I expect it to work fine. ...read more

MSD Iron Distributor Gears

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

MSD-8561
Don't forget to install these melonized gear if you are running a roller cam.... All MSD and a lot of aftermaket distributor come with a regular iron gear...That will ruin fast if equiped with a roller cam engine.... Verify the Inside dia. for the correct gear.

Exactly as advertised, fit and function was excellent. Just wish they gave you an option when buying a new msd distributer for a melanized or non melanized gear
