Steel Distributor Gears for Fords with .500 distributor shaft.
Crane Cams now offers precision machined, steel distributor gears for popular Ford engines using cast flat faced and steel roller camshafts. Roller lifter cams are made from either induction hardened steel or carburized steel.Neither of these materials are compatible with the normal stock distributor gears. In the past ”bronze” distributor gears were used. For street applications these gears wear at an excessive rate and have to be replaced on a regular basis. By using modern heat treating and manufacturing processes, Crane Cams has developed a series of steel distributor gears that are compatible with cast and both induction hardened and carburized steel roller lifter cams. Crane Cams now makes it possible to use a steel distributor gear that provides OEM-style life-span, eliminating the need to frequently replace bronze alloy gears.These new Crane steel gears are available for most Ford engines for both stock and aftermarket distributors. The use of these gears on camshafts that have been previously run with other types or materials of gears, or the unnecessary use of high volume/high pressure oil pumps, can be severely detrimental to the life of the camshaft gear. Note: The ”Shaft Diameter” dimension referred to is the portion of the distributor shaft that the gear registers on. It may be necessary to remove the original gear to measure the shaft diameter correctly.
