I need a timing gear, I dropped and cracked mine.

Anybody got one for sale?
Thanks.

No dice. What I have is the cracked one from the dodge.

Are cracks on this gear common?

When I found mine cracked there were a few said they'd experienced the same. I was told by a few to run it.....I didn't tho lol. I believe I bought my replacement from eBay and then I bought another and a ve timing case/cover off of someone here for my 24v C10.

Yes and no, it doesn't happen a lot, but it happens. I doubt if you cracked yours from dropping it also. I think the biggest cause is over torqueing them, wedging it too hard on the tapered shaft, then all of a sudden it cracks.

You know Pete, over-torquing makes sense to me. The torque spec in the book for the gear is very low, something measured in inch-pounds, which is weird for a nut that size.

I dropped mine from maybe two feet up, I didn't think I cracked it at the time, until I noticed it was cracked all the way through a few days latter.


Probably safe to say that nobody has ever heard of catastrophic timing gear failure?



A few guys have PM'd me, I'll be buying one this week.

48 ft lbs. Real easy to over torque that, I used to just tighten it up, but I am getting smarter as I get older and use the torque wrench to prevent what happened to you. ;)
