Default Re: Timing gear oiling?

The aluminum timing gear (as everybody knows) is bolted to the front mounting face of the camshaft! There is NO oiling passages that come out of the side of the cam shaft into the gear. So drilling it would be redundant! Some aluminum gears have spokes and voids cast into them to allow oil mist to circulate. (This is for oil mist that may splash up from the pan under hard braking!) So far there has not been any body that has seen a shortage of oil
in this area (I mean dry)!
