Default Re: fiber timing gear

I replaced the T gear in my A a while back.The old fiber gear was loose like yours.A preveous owner had not tightenen the cam nut tight enough & while the gear looked OK,it had been working on the dowel holes in the gear & they were wollowed out.I replaced with an alum gear.The crank gear was OK.You dont have to even be able to see the timing mark on the crank gear.Line up the timing dimple on cam gear with RH edge of the key way in crank shaft & it will be spot on.RH edge of key way is when you are looking from front ,or on drivers side of car.Looking carefully behind the oil slinger you will see the timing mark.The alum was just as quiet as a fiber gear.
