V6 essex timing gear

Hi all

As my essex is out of the car for a number of issues, I checked the timing gear which is the old nylon type.

Question is should I replace it with steel or alloy?

Do I need to replace both gears? (even though the crank gear looks flawless)

Thanks in advance

New member about to purchase first Reliant

Hi and welcome.

I started in November last year, will be interesting what issues you encounter.

I have a solid car with quite a few engine/ suspension/ bodywork and interior restoration problems to address and have found the forum a great help.
