    Nothing new about composite dizzy gears. Comp and others have been selling them for years. We pretty much settled this discussion here

    I bought one once by mistake....felt a little uneasy about installing a gear that weighed less than the box it came in, so I returned it. I don't trust 'em. With a dry sump and no load on the gear from driving an oil pump...I'd run it all day, but not with a conventional oil pump. No way.

    got one sittin in the box, msd bronze in the motor...as much as I hate bronze gears ... figure for 45 bucks I can change it every 3 trips if need be...lol...


    Now that lunati everwear steel gear looks interesting...I may try it if the bronze deal looks like it has a perfect wear pattern.

    Crane made a similar gear just before they folded. I have one, but they sent me one to fit a stock GM dizzy, and before I could return it, they closed their doors. And S&S doesn't make it. Wonder if Lunati's gear is the same gear. I may give one a try. Thanks for the hook up. I have been looking for a similar gear.

    Couple around here with no teeth left someone can have for free if they want. Just make sure you add the steel colar on your oil pump drive before you put on the plastic gear that drives it.

    What are you saying. Too much plastic in one assembly. What the hell are you doing with a drive shaft with a plastic collar anyways. Don't you know that stuff get brittle as hell in -50* weather.

    The plastic collar saves the plastic gear.

    Fiat, did the mag alone with a dry sump do that. If so, it isn't going to be any better with a dizzy and a oil pump.

    No. It was conventional oil pump.
    Flatbottom deal...blown gas...7500 rpm. Lasted maybe 10 or 12 runs.

    I don't think I would use one unless it was just turning a distributor and no oil pump. But then...I bet a bronze gear would last a long time in that situation too.....so not solving anything.
