Presses off & back on. Check with Barnfind08 here on fordbarn- Fred Wilmer he has gears.

I assume that your request was for the timing gear on the camshaft. For 1935-38 cams that gear was pressed onto the camshaft. Those were fiber gears with a steel center bore. There’s a small notch on the steel center which must align with a comparable notch on the cam. We have original style fiber gears in standard, and a couple oversizes (.003” and .005” I believe). We don’t have the press on gears available in aluminum at this time. Just contact us after the holiday break if you want to order one.

Be very careful when you press the timing gear back on. The registration mark or index mark on my 1935 camshaft is not easy to see. See picture below. My engine rebuilder had an apprentice assemble my camshaft and he must of just guessed where to press the gear back on. It was way off and of course the engine did not run. It was not a lot of fun to fix as you can imagine.
