I'd advise defo not to fit anything other than alloy or steel. The Essex is an "interference" engine, if the cam stops working the pistons do hit the valves which is why Ford modified the cam driven gear three times to try and extend the life of it.

The wheels are in motion with the next batch of alloy gear sets as previously supplied.
But other than "later this summer" I can't really say when they will be available.

Price will of course be keener than any other current offerings.

Should be shipping via airfreight any day now so may well be able to offer them for collection from Curborough .

Large one is alloy, small one is steel. Possible to replace only the large wheel provided the teeth are of the same form as original and will mesh correctly.

Actually meant to post something up about these today as I have been liaising with the manufacturer over a minor production issue with the crank gears. The short of it is unfortunately a delay of around 40 days on the original time scale. So sadly I am not going to be able to offer these before Curborough.

If both gears are supplied, then you can be sure they're the revised form angle so unlikely to match your existing gear.
If one gear is supplied, then it should be the original Ford form.

Quick note to say the timing gears are due to land next week. Will post up full details and "offering" in due course once through customs and available for purchase.
