high-quality MSD bronze distributor gears are machined from quality AMPCO 45 aluminum bronze containing 5% nickel. This material creates high strength gear teeth which are less prone to wear when used with high volume oil pumps but does not harm the cam like steel or iron gears. With the proper cam and gear combination you'll be sure to have flawless, extended performance in the harshest conditions.

Q:

In the description it states “not for extended street use”. Does this mean that I should not use it in my Bronco which is driven daily? Also is the pine hardened to resist shearing?

Thanks

Asked by JACK on April 19, 2018

A:

Jack, The 8585 bronze distributor gear, like all bronze gears, is designed to be used with a billet roller type camshaft typically found in race engine applications that see limited use and regular inspection and parts replaced as necessary. I'd recommend checking with your cam manufacturer for a distributor gear recommendation and we can point you in the right direction for the proper distributor and gear.

The Right Gear

After pulling the engine, we found they installed a cast iron gear instead of the bronze gear causing wear on the cam. This will work great with the new cam and distributor.

I have bought several bronze gears from MSD previously, and was sort of disappointed to see that this gear was manufactured in China!
