Good advice from both here, no bronze if you put any miles

Response to Bronze: only o.k. for race engines...

If you ever see one that has high miles, they just vanish. First they get sharp from wear and then the teeth just go away.

A buddy's 302 in a street driven 68 Mustang, well cared for, low street spring pressure, nothing fancy with oil pressure or RPM just quit running one day. We pulled the distributor and it looked like someone took a grinder to the bronze gear.

I follow the same rule and Brent, we put a steel gear, at the correct height, and never looked back
