Hi Guys,

Whilst stripping my engine and looking at the timing gears/sprockets etc i noticed even though the gears do not have the normal hook wear pattern, they are all very rough on the edges.

I had already planned to replace the upper and lower timing chains but i am concerned about the state of these gears.

Is it normal practice to smooth these edges with a metal file etc. or would these gears need to be replaced ???

Thanks for any help.

Rob.

Thanks for the responses guys.
Richard, when you say "at a minimum i suggest smoothing them out, i am curious as to what else could be done. Could you please elaborate ?

Thanks,

Rob.
