Shop ADJUSTABLE CAM GEAR

ADJUSTABLE CAMSHAFT GEAR 944 8v / 944T



Fits Models:

  • 924S
  • 944 8v '83-'89
  • 944T

Features:

  • Lightweight CNC Machined 6061 T6 Aluminum Outer Drive Gear
  • Hard Anodized For Surface Hardening & Long Life
  • Steel Center Hub To Resist Key-way Wear
  • Adjustable From 4° Retard To 6° Advance (8° To 12° Crankshaft)
  • Adjustable Without Removing The Gear
  • Four ARP SS 12 pt. Securing Bolts
  • Reference Marks For Piston Position (for measuring valve lash on solids).

This " Top Shelf " adjustable cam gear is available for the 944 8v and 944 Turbo. Incrementally adjust the cam timing using the timing marks machined on the gear itself. Adjustment marks for 4° retard to 6° advance in camshaft degrees which is 8° to 12° in crankshaft degrees. After setting up dozens of cams, the worst we ever had to dial one back in is 5 degrees of crankshaft degrees. Since you would never want to advance or retard more than the limits of our gear's adjustment, you have all the adjustment you will ever need. You can adjust our gear further, but you won't need to.

There is no more guessing or fussing with complicated cam degree wheels. This CNC machined gear allows you to fine tune the cam for optimum performance.

When the 944 motor has it's head or block faced, the distance between the cam gear and the crankshaft pulley is reduced. This changes the camshaft timing because the belt is in effect longer. The cam is now retarded in it's timing from stock. We are only talking about a few degrees. However, advancing the cam timing has the effect of lowering the RPM at which peak power occurs. The opposite is achieved when the cam timing is retarded.

This gear enables you to dial your cam back in and beyond. Move your power band up or down as you need it with ease.

In designing this gear, we measured several factory gears and found the relationship of the gear teeth and key-way to be as much as 2° different from one another. We don't know which is correct, but it just goes to show how far your cam can be off even if your car is completely stock. Then there is the possibility of the same issue on the position of the crank gear key, the crank key and the camslaft key. You really don't know where the cam position actually is. A degree kit and an adjustable gear is the only correct way to know.



One thing making our gear superior to others is our Steel Center Hub. When you install heavier valve springs or certain grinds of camshafts, the load on the key increases. We feel the key is undersized, but we cannot change that. We have seen several stock cam gears where the key-way has worn and also damaged the camshaft key-way. This can also come from higher RPM. Here is one example of a factory steel gear failing. The key-way in the camshaft was chipped away as well and both needed to be replaced.

When we first produced this gear, we used a Steel Outer Gear and Steel Center Hub. We sold them this way for about 4 years without a failure. We decided that we would switch to aluminum on our next production run. Then we started to see worn key-ways on stock steel camshaft gears and camshafts. We felt that going aluminum on the outer gear was fine, but backed away from an Aluminum Center Hub. It's just not strong enough. Even the steel isn't if your cam bolt starts to work loose. Don't let anyone tell you an aluminum part is as strong as steel. It's just not so.

When the key-way on the gear wears, so can the camshaft. One of our customers found out the hard way that you cannot repair a damaged key-way on a cam, so it means total replacement.

Light wear it counts, tough where it must be, and fully adjustable = " Top Shelf ".

Ever so slight clearancing "may" be required on the aluminum housing behind the cam gear. Some of these housings have webbing and some don't. Some that do vary in webbing height. Those with ribs that are taller may need clearancing.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERING



TO OUR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:


In the past, we have used a separate order form for placing International orders. We have quit using that process and are requiring all customer to use the shopping cart system built into the web site and it's check out process.

If you simply want a quotation and are not ready to place an order, then cut and paste the contents of your shopping basket, take a screen shot of the basket, or make a list of items and send us a email requesting a quotation with shipping.

If you need shipping prices before you make your final decision to purchase, then you should request that quotation by email and not use the shopping cart checkout process because you will be paying for the parts at that time.

Since our shopping cart and shipping estimator will "NOT" correctly calculate shipping charges on International Orders, we have it set-up to where the shipping will be Zero Dollars ($0.00) when checking out. When the shopping carts address process learns you are not in the United States by selecting your particular country, that's when it switches to equal Zero. That does NOT mean shipping is free.

Upon completion of the check out process, you will have paid for your parts but NOT the shipping on those parts.

Once we look over your parts ordered and calculate shipping weights and box sizes, we will send you an E-Mail with at least one shipping option and maybe several. We utilize UPS, DHL and the United States Postal Service (USPS) to deliver your parts.

Once you pick a shipping carrier and agree to the quotation by returning the E-Mail, we will be sending a PayPal money request for the amount of the shipping to be collected. If the parts are expected to be shipping out quickly, then you may receive that email quickly. If the parts are going to need to be built or something is on back order from the list of parts, we may hold off sending that E-Mail until we have the shipment ready to go. It can vary from order to order as to how we do that. If you think you should be hearing from us quickly, but you don't, feel free to contact us.

If you have special shipping needs or requirements, during the checkout you will see a SPECIAL ORDER INSTRUCTIONS window. Enter that special information there.

A good bit of our business is International and we have been taking care of those valued customers since 1999.
