Does anyone know how to make cam gears specifically for a four cylinder. If so then can you please show me step by step. Thank you.

Something like this...

Watch parts? It seems to me MicroMark had a assortment of them available.

Thanks tiki kat but I'm not looking to buy anything, I just want to make the cam gears from scratch

You could start by looking at some different size tube lids (medicines, toothpaste, maybe beauty supplies).  Many of them are knurled/slotted.  Cut a thin slice off use some styrene for the centers, Plastruct offers different sizes of hex shaped styrene strips that can be sliced for bolt heads.  Look around the medicine cabinet or your significant other's make-up area (just don't get caught) and see what is available.  I have some small caps from my eye-drops that can be cut down to look quite a bit like the newer cold-air style air cleaners.  Hope this helps.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!
