Which cam core do you have?
An 8620 steel billet or an "Austempered Iron" billet?
This will determine gear selection.

i might have to call comp cams as the part# 35-452-8 and the grind # fw 290rf-hr10 any help would be great i believe it requires the steel gear or brass and the brass is really soft the cast iron or ductile is to hard and the steel is just right for pourage opps wrong storie sorry about that lol Bruce
