Plastic Gear Life

I replaced the plastic gear on my '91 200 at 230,000 miles.  When I went to
pull the old plastic gear off the shaft, it literally disintegrated in my
fingers.  All the teeth simply turned into small bits and powder. I can't
imagine that I could have gone another ten miles on it. With the new metal
gear, performance was much tighter. It was clear that the worn teeth
introduced a timing offset and rattle that effected performance.
