possibly a cam gear for a different cam like maybe b series or something.
Only think I'd be able to think up.
Go back and check your order from where ever you got it or call the company, see if they sent you the wrong one.
Might be a F-series cam gear?
Just a thought I had when I read this, is your cam gear powdercoated???? If so, it could be the thickness of the powdercoat that's hangin you up. Take a piece of sandpaper and try to take a bit of the powdercoat out until it fits.
got pics. we sell a LOT of comp/zex B-series cams and I have never heard of this problem. im with everyone else, i think it might be the wrong cam gears for the engine.
you'd know if it was a B Series Cam because the D Series cams have the lobes for both intake and exhaust. I'm guessing it's the wrong cam gear
don't know why it won't fit, but it appears to be a D-series gear - it has 38 teeth - B-series (and DOHC ZC)gears have 34 teeth - F-series (and D16A1) gears have 40 teeth
been there. i was bein really gentle with the pontiac 400 i was taking apart a few months ago (first engine EVER for me) and i couldnt get a piston out. my buddy, whos been doing this for top fuel cars forever grabs this rod shoves it into the cylinder and smacks it with a 10 lb mallet. you eventually learn that everything is a matter of how big of a hammer do i need to put that on/take that out, or how much leverage do i need to pop that off.
yeah, and mine was a pontiac 400. if it survived 35 years in a la mans, i think it can last another 2 minutes with me. oh...i gotta post the pictures from that engine...its crazy. Ill start my own thread. thread jackers r teh SUCK.
