New here, timing chain question

I have a 75 F250 supercab with the 460. I want to replace the timing gear set with a double roller. Would this beneficial to run this at 0? To gain more power

Do NOT run a billet upper gear on an oem iron thrust retainer. Iron top gear.

That being said a 93 and up EFI replacement double roller timing set is a great upgrade that is cost effective.

All EFI 460 engines had straight up cam timing.

Is there a different Thrust retainer plate I can order? To replace the factory iron unit?

I have it figured out and installed, it worked out great. The timing gear came with a spacer that went behind the gear. I took off the factory thrust cam plate and countersink the hole for flush mounting hardware. I have no rubbing or interference from the cam gear. This Billet timing gear set works just fine.

Cool

So long as the timing set has a thurst washer or bearing it will be fine.

I did not note the washer from the pic when making my original post. When running billet steel against the soft oem iron retainer severe damage will occur.
