Distributor gear wear.

Hi guys, i rebuilt the engine in my camaro about a year ago, and have put about 3-5k miles on it since, my question is about the distributor gear and it's abnormal wearing.

I pulled the distributor out a couple days ago to seal up a leak between it and the intake manifold, all went well. Except when i inspected the distributor gear it appeared to have significant wear on it, it's worn down about half of the gear on it. I know this is not normal and was wondering if there is some sort of fix for it, besides just replacing the gear all the time.

The distributor gear was not replaced when i rebuilt the engine, idk how many miles are on the dizzy either. Is there some sort of spacer or something that goes between the dizzy and intake manifold that i should know about.

New parts include the mellings m55 oilpump and summit k1102 cam.
