I would love to find some Aluminum cam gears for a v8/60 .
Tony, here are pics of some aluminum timing gears from my stash. Early 85hp on left, 60hp on right. First is of front, second is of back. This 60hp timing gear carries part number 2709-A, nothing on this gear that mentions Offenhouser, but that doesn't necessarly mean they didn't make it. The aluminum 60hp timing gear was part of a collection of 60hp engines and engine rebuilding parts that I bought from a family in NJ. These parts had belonged to someone who had raced a hydroplane on the Delaware River. I called Rich Willim about finding these parts and had several conversations with him about how to build a 60hp engine that would produce 100+ hp.
