  • 1933 ford v8 timming gear

    This gear is a press on, not bolt on as is the model A. What is the procedure of pressing this gear on?

    Claude are you going back with an aluminum gear?
    The best way is to heat it with a propane torch wearing gloves. It takes a fast transition to slap it on while its hot.

      I didn't know they had aluminum gears for this, that is great. I was always suspicious of the fiber gears integrity. For model A's there are aluminum and even brass gears available. Who sells the aluminum timming gears for the early v8's?

          Be SURE to line up the timing mark on the cam & the gear!---Once bought an "unknown" RACIN' Cam, with 2 marks??? Lucky for us, the FIRST try worked! (BRMP-BRUMP-BRUMP!)

            My macerated timing gear failed. What would the experts recommend for a replacement gear? Is there a torque for the cam gear nut?

            What type of Timing Gear
            by Cape Codder
            I see there are aluminum timing gears offered by the vendors.
            1. Is / was there ever a brass one offered?
            2. Does changing to a metal timing gear make more noise than the fiber gear?
            3. If an aluminum gear is used how does it fair to meshing with a steel gear as to wear?
            4. Lastly, the instructions provided by the vendor description is to have at least .003" lash...

            need transmission help
            by Mickey
            I am preparing to remove the body of my coupe. Everything ready. went to push it outside and it won't move. I had pulled the transmission tower and now it appears to be in gear. Problem is I can't get the tower back in place to shift it. The two pictures show where things are. It appears the tower is in neutral but I have no idea where the transmission is. I cant get the two top gears far enough apart...

            cam gear.
            by canadian
            trying to sort out a engine noise . removed cover for timing gear , have a small amount of backlash movement but noticed that gear is a little loose seems around centre somewhere. fibre gear . question can this be replaced in car? I have a aluminum one on hand, are these recommended ? or worst ? also can cam gear come off on it own or does both gears have to come off at same time? thanks

            Trans noise
            by bosticjb
            My transmission seems ok in all gears except 2nd it's louder than the others, pulls good but a lot louder than in 1st or 3rd any suggestions, going to pull trans to address flywheel issue and while it's out would like to address it if it's not normal

            Aluminum timing gear going bad, advice needed
            by kris-k
            Hello, I noticed my timing gear is being shaved down by the drive gear. Anyone know why this is happening? I have a new fiber gear that I'm going to install but I'm wondering if this is part of a larger issue. I image a fiber gear would fail catastrophically if something isn't right. Thanks

            Contemplating removal of transmission in 1933 model B Ford
            by ClaudeC
            My trans is still sometimes popping out of 2nd gear on power off.
            Contemplating removing trans, replacing 2nd gear if badly worn and replacing trans.
            True, I could send the entire trans to Mac Van Pelt, but I still have to remove it and them replace it when It is rebuilt.
            What problems would I have with replacing the transmission? Do I have to reset countless connections.

            Goldie locks preload for timing gear
            by carolinamudwalker
            OK, lets say you don't have the Goldie locks mesh when installing a new timing gear. What do you do about it? Buy another one and through the first one away? Lets say it is an expensive bronze gear. Inquiring minds want to know
