Crane Steel Distributor Gears 36971-1
Designed for steel roller camshafts. For aftermarket distributor with 0.500″ diameter shaft.
Crane Cams offers a variety of precision-machined, steel distributor gears for people using steel roller camshafts. These steel distributor gears feature a modern heat-treating and manufacturing process that makes them compatible with steel cams. Roller cams are made of either induction-hardened or carburized steel. Neither of these materials is compatible with the stock distributor gears. In the past, bronze distributor gears were used, but for street applications, the bronze gears wear at an excessive rate and have to be replaced on a regular basis. Crane Cams now makes it possible to use a steel distributor gear that provides an OEM-style lifespan without damaging the cam.
