Need VVTI cam gear help

I’m doing the timing belt and I bought a new vvti cam gear. When I hold the new cam gear in my hand and I flip it over forwards and back, I can hear movement inside. It sounds like a gear is sliding forwards and back. My old one doesn’t do that. Did I get a defective part?

Thanks

There IS a gear inside there sliding forward and back...

The old one doesn't do it because it's filled with oil.

Install it and proceed with the job.

It'll make some seriously rod-knocky sounds when you first start it up too. Till it fills with oil. Just be warned.

Oh god, is there any way to pre-fill it?

I just started her up and it sounds like there is a new tick. Is that where it’s coming from?
