Anyone have info on when to replace the composite camshaft gear on the FJ62? This was changed from the steel gear to have a quieter engine & reduced weight. Friends FJ62 has 200k+ miles on the engine. Still runs well. Looking for someone that has data and maybe pics of the gear after xxx miles. Is there an easy way to check the gear without pulling the engine? Will a steel gear fit and bolt up if the composite gear is worn? Any information is appreciated.

I have taken apart several engines with +250k miles and never seen one that appeared worn out. I believe they are interchangeable with the steel gears and both steel and resin gears are available new from Joint Fuji

There are still a few Toyota cam gears available in the US.

Dear Sir

Thank you for your inquiry.

Unfortunately, we do not have this gear in our stock with us.
But we can supply from TOYOTA genuine items for 16000yen/pc.
How many pcs do you need?

In case if you need more than 300pcs,
our factory may be able to produce under our brand.

Thanks & Best Regards
