      Restore Spark Timing and Oil Pressure. Restore the spark timing accuracy in your Jeep along with the oil pressure in your ride by installing this Distributor Drive Gear. This powerful gear handles the timing of sparks managed by your distributor as well as the operation of your oil pump.

      Gray Stock Drive Gear. This replacement Distributor Drive Gear uses an angled gear orientation for installing to the cam at a slight angle with dependable contact and performance. This gear is gray in color and polished for smooth performance with minimal friction.

      Hardened Steel Construction. This gear is formed from hardened steel for an extended lifespan while handling high pressures. The part mates with the cam gear and turns continually while your engine is running with reliable performance. It’s a long-lasting design that works for years when mated to a new cam gear.

      Medium Installation Process. It will take a professional several hours to replace the distributor gear by itself. It’s important to note that the cam gear should be replaced at the same time as the distributor gear for the best results. This process should be left to professionals for long-lasting reliability.

      One-Year Warranty. The manufacturer of this gear provides a 1-year warranty on the part to guard against any material defects or workmanship issues. The actual installation of the part isn’t protected by this warranty, but it should still help ensure the part is high-quality.

      Application. This Distributor Drive Gear fits 1978-1990 4.2L Jeep CJ5, CJ7, and Wrangler YJ vehicles. No adjustments or cutting is required to make this part fit.
