Gear Drives?

2329 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  mavman
I am building a 331 right now and it's time to get a new timing gear/chain. I was thinking about getting a timing gear instead. Anyone have advice on this? The noisy whine of the straight cut gear sounds kind of cool to me (no pun intended) and they say it is more accurate. Appreciate any input.

Gear drives transmit harmonics from the crank to the camshaft and will sometimes affect cam actuation. In some high rpm cases i have seen them crack a camshaft as well stick with the chain
