NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. We are now only fulfilling order requests for items that are able to be acquired within 3 weeks IF we are able to get them. Longer than 3 weeks backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled, and will be fulfilled in the longer, as-advertised timeframe.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you select the "3 week backorder fulfillment option", you can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently our response time to emails is slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even when we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.

Billet Straight Cut Cam Gears, Steel
ACN Recommended Billet Straight Cut Cam Gears, Steel


 
ACN Recommended Billet Straight Cut Cam Gears, Steel remove the thrust load off the camshaft bearings, which is a problem with dual springs, and especially with high lift camshafts. These require less HP to drive than stock (helical) gears. Supplied with bolts and 0, 2, and 4 degree shims. These are less expensive than other brands, but we have had outstanding success with these!

Make sure during gear installation that you check a couple things prior to installing the crank gear onto the crankshaft. Sometimes the woodruff key is too wide, or the slot in the crank is too narrow. This causes the crank to "swell" when the key is hammered into the crank, then the gear is too tight next to the gear. This is a common cause of the gear cracking at the key way, or the more common not known problem of elliptical crank gears, which shows as the cam gear has serious tooth wear in 2 locations 180 degrees from one another on the soft aluminum gear. Make absolutely sure that the crankshaft does not measure larger on either side next to the woodruff key AFTER the key is installed, to avoid this serious build issue!
