Default Re: fiber timing gear

I've never been able to get over five or six years of mostly every day use with a new one of the fiber gears like pictured above.. The cogs of the metal center work themselves loose in the fiber part of the gear. The gear gets wobbly and after a while strips. The engine then looses all compression and quits. I was lucky to coast home the last time one stripped.
