So im running a comp cams XE 264 and I was wondering if I needed to change the distributor gear or does the stock distributor already have a hardened gear ?

Having my mustang to work on has helped against getting cabin fever these last three weeks. Now if I only had some cash to sink in to the stang.

Appreciate any replies and please everybody stay safe in these troubling times.

[/QUOT If it is a roller motor distributor it does have a hardened gear, a call to Comp will verify, they are nice people.

I am running an XE 264 cam in one of my 1990 cars. Running the stock distributor. Been fine for 6 + years.
