Distributor Gear Material ?
It appears that several of the aftermarket distributors are stating that they have a 4340 steel... or a chrome moly steel distributor gear.
I've always read that you should use a melonized steel distributor gear (or a composite gear) when installing a ductile iron or billet steel roller cam.
Does anyone know if the 4340 steel, or the chrome moly steel distributor gear is similar to the melonized steel distributor gear?... and can they safely be used with a ductile iron or billet steel roller cam?
