ive been a member of this site for a long time, but i just started getting back on lately when i bought a tired 91 DX crx. i converted it 5speed, did a wire tuck, repainted the bay, installed a fresh(er) d15b2/p08 mini me, and got an adjustable cam gear off ebay to correct the half tooth timing error. the one i got was an 3 spoke onsaku brand gear. looks like a good gear, BUT with the gear installed it rubs violently against the inside timing belt cover.

the problem is with the piece that goes between the head and the gear. at first i thought my engine was knocking horribly, but then i noticed the plastic shavings building up in that area. i think it was just the bolts sticking through too far. to fix this i just removed the gear and trimmed the cover where the contact was occuring. i didnt want to completely remove the cover, because it has the marks for aligning TDC, and it would look naked/exposed.

i just wanted to let everyone know that if you purchase this gear, you might want to trim the center section of the TB cover BEFORE you install everything. trying to save everyone some hassle!

Thanks for the heads up, got any pics of the mess?

This is an example of why I don't buy ebay parts anymore, only the best will do. (Bisi cam gear :) )
