Adjustable Straight Cut Camshaft Gear - Type 1 Engines

Adjustable straight cut 3 bolt or rivet camshaft gear to fit Type 1 aircooled engines built up to 1971 and all aftermarket performance camshafts that have the 3 bolt pattern

The use of heavy dual valve springs and stock helical cut camshaft gears results in excessive side load on the cam bearing thrust shoulder.

Straight Cut Cam Gears run without side load and solves the problem of early wear to cam bearing thrust surfaces.

An added bonus is that Straight Cut Cam Gears run with less friction than helical cut gears and produce more power.

Straight Cut Cam Gears are adjustable to enable you to dial in your cam timing.

Each Straight Cut Cam Gear kit is shipped with three sets of adjusting discs for cam timing.

Quality: Top quality


  • Supplied with camshaft timing gear
  • Fixing bolts may need clearancing and modification to clear the oil pump when fitting, always test before installation

Fitment: 3 bolt or rivet camshafts
