OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is TEMPORARILY PAUSED to allow our warehouse staff time to catch up on the shipping and backorder backlog for already received orders in progress.

Our checkout system will re-open on Saturday January 29th at 3:00pm (MST)

You may want to copy and paste to save the items your cart (that includes links back to the items listings) in order to save them, just in case your browser does not. We hope that you will return when our online checkout resumes accepting new orders.

ORDER REQUESTS ARE BEING FULFILLED/SHIPPED as backordered items become available, but many popular products are delayed or in short supply. Restock ETAs for backordered items are often either unavailable, or unreliable. We continue to answer emails as best we can, but we are operating with less than half of our normal staff, so please be patient. Your understanding is appreciated while our company struggles to weather the challenges from Covid-19, and do what we still can to support the aircooled VW hobby.

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!
