1924 Buick timing gear


Recommended Posts

Is it a spur gear or a helical gear? On a spur gear the teeth run straight across the face while on a helical gear they run at an angle. If it's a spur gear any 60-tooth spur gear of the right diametrical pitch, thickness and hole size will work. There is a formula for calculating the DP...I don't have it at hand but it isn't hard to do. Is your gear worn out? If it is a fiber gear - which is what the picture looks like, you could replace it with a bronze gear. All of this presumes you can't find one easily but I'd think there must be NOS timing gears around...there would not be a big demand for them.
