Cam question
hey guys I have a custom grind cam in my bbc that when I tore down the motor I noticed it has little bit of chewing on the dist. gear I've since then bought a bronze gear my ? is is the cam still useable it looks like it ate in about maybe half the thickness of a fingernail

I'd like to use this cam since one its a custom grind two it made my motor into an animal and three I got it real cheap from a friend that builds off shore race boat motors

it was fine when I got it. running the motor for about 20 mins to set the lash and break in the lifters is what ate it up a little and its not a cheap hyd cam its a Jones custom grind solid roller

thanks I had heard that at one time but wasnt sure if it was true ( the repairable dist. gear ) I would think with the cost of a replacement of this cam it should have the pressed on gear I have to call Jones in the morning I choked when I talked to them about a replacement cuz it was in the ballpark of $850 for the same grind cam
