Timming Gears MK V.
« on: 03 Oct 2017 at 14:01 »
Hi all,  Wanted camshaft timing gear R/H the one with dot, as I have two L/H ones perhaps someone would like my spare here's hoping there's no more surprises in this Douglas engine. Many Thanks. Phil 1.

You can use the timing gears you already have. See my Spannerama book.

Hi Neville,  I have your book to hand and may have misread, but my two camshaft gears are identical !, with a number one stamped  for the timing mark, I also notice there are no extractor holes, I feel these gears may not be original to my engine a mark v. PS my crank is at Alpha bearings for big end replacement so this gives me time to attend to other parts.

Phil
When I said you could use what you had I meant you could use my book to work out a timing mark on a non-standard gear. L and R are NOT interchangeable as R keyways point to a space and L ones to a tooth. Now for the good news. I have found up a good R one you can have. Just send me the postage.
