This distributor comes with a steel gear. It is compatible with flat tappet and OEM hydraulic roller cams. It is not compatible with aftermarket billet roller cams, this would require purchasing of a bronze gear such as part number 5478583

MSD 8582 Ford 289-302 Billet Distributor
(Part #5478582)

MSDs billet distributors are for Ford enthusiasts who are serious about performance! Just under the brass terminals of the MSD cap and rotor is an easy-to-adjust mechanical advance assembly.
