Ha..Sounds good. So you say that I can use a noisy timing gear from a 460 if I grind off the nipple on the one side and grind down the inside of the timing cover?

I just tried to mock up the 460 noisy timing gear to my 430 and it wasn't even close. Next time you say something will work you need to prove it with pics. Nasty55ford you owe me $60.

I apologize for being a little rude. The $60 is not really the issue. I just really wanted to use the gear instead of a chain and you had me thinking it would work. As far as taking it to a machine shop, there is nothing they can do about the gears not being the right size. When I mocked it up, the middle gear wasn't even close to fitting. There was no room in between.
