Steel roller cams with integral distributor gears, it is always recomended to use a lesser hardness distributor gear. So what difference is there in various gear sets in say any manual transmission, and for that matter any planetary gear set? And then move to the hypoid gears in a rear end. I was always under the impression that all gears in a transmission were the same materials and same hardness, they seem to live just fine. So what is the deal with distributer gearing? Is it more of a lubrication issue?
