    Are there any fake Fidanza Cam gears out there? I’ve searched and couldn’t find anything. Found these and just wanted to make sure. They look legit

    Thanks
    Tony

    For what it’s worth I bought a set of HKS 272 cams off this guy, and they are the real deal.

    Do they have timing marks? Does not look like it in your photo... The fidanza ones have clear marks like 1990tsiawdtalon posted above. If they don't I would honesty say they are not fidanzas. I have seen copies before.

    I can see timing marks in the first image. Looks like that are either very dirty or almost rubbed off

    I "almost" thought I could see some also which is why I told Tony to get a closeup.
    My old eyes aren't what they used to be (neither is anything else ROFL)

    The marks are there, just dirty or rubbed off like @silvreclips stated. The picture quality is crap, but I see them.

    Fidanzas also have "evo" stamped on them.

    Just a reminder for me but if you can remember that R etard is R ight and Advance is Left.
    Notice the "R's", but hell I wouldn't remember that so I wrote it on the gears LOL.

    Think so too Marty and $50 for set of AEM is a deal and a half. It’s one of those parts where I really don’t mind if it’s used or not as long as they’re in working condition. Hate to cut up my lower cover but we’ll see what happens.

    I know. Actually took two broken covers to make one. Think you can still get them new for about $100 last time I checked. We’ll see once I get every assembled

    I found 3 used for 50 each and gladly paid it for 2 of them. I hated my half cover. I just got 3 clear timing gear covers yesterday in the mail from Amazon.
