- New Isky cams come with this gear

560-56350 Instructions (PDF)
Replace your flathead Ford V8's weak original "fiber" timing chain gear with this superior, aluminum cam gear. It lasts longer and withstands high performance cam/valve spring loads with ease.
NOTE: # 560-56320 is an exact replacement for 1935-1948 Fords & Mercs using a "bolt-on" gear. Some 1935-1941 Fords/Mercurys used a press-on gear, this replacement timing chain gear will not work for this type of application. All our Isky cams for this engine use the bolt-on gear.
Allows the use of early ('32-'48) camshaft with late ('49-'53) timing cover.
Provides proper drive gear clearance when using aftermarket distributor and 560-56310.
