Porsche Crest Plastic Fiber Cam Gear? (Newbie Question #348)

O.K. split the case today, wasn't too bad.

Do they all have Fiber Cam gears, and are the web replacements Fiber or metal?

Mine is a -4 any pros or cons to reusing it vs a webcam one?

Never heard of one. All the ones I have seen are aluminum. Are you sure it's just not caked real good with oil residue?

If a fiber one exist I'm sure Jake Raby has seen it. Maybe he will weigh in.

I will double check I was expecting a steel one like a TypeI. Feels way too light. Looks abd feels like the old GM fiber gears in the 4Cylinders.

It's been ages since I messed with an aircooled motor. Just trying not to mess anything up. If it was a Small Block Ford, I'd know what to do.

Actually, the type 1 cam gear is alumunim also (but 3 bolt instead of 5). The cam drive gear on the crank is steel on both the type 4 and type 1.

You guys are right, it's aluminum. I guess it just surprised me at how light it was, and due to the coloringI assumed it was Fiber (and we all Know how that word breaks down)

Back to your regularly sceduled programming.
