Hold on now, there is more to this. The cam drive gear in the two pictures has the same rotation. The drive gear is not zip zip zip easy to swap out. The little pressed in pin is the easy part in removing or installing the cam gear. The drive gear is pressed on to the distributor shaft, the brand of distributor will more than likely have a diameter specific cam gear (they are not generic shaft size diameter LH and RH gears), and the legnth of the shafts can be different.
After comparing the 2 distributors they appear to be the same. Same gear rotation, same size gear, and same legnth.
That's a good price on the eBay buy it now.
