    I just bought a .490 bronze gear for a BBC from Super Shops in El Cajon, maybe they can help you...? 619-562-4339

    If you can use a used steel gear I probably have one.

    Once again some one is looking for a part and we have no idea what part of the country he is in....It is quite simple to show your home town under your screen name, and it sure helps others help you in cases like this. If I knew of a gear, in stock, at the corner parts store would you come and get it?............MP

    Default bronze or steel

    What is the best I understand the idea behind bronze, is that it will "go" before the cam.....but I also heard they suck. Not to thrad jack but what one are you thinking brendellajet??? And what is the gerneral consensus here????
