The information I have shows the VH4D introduced in 1956 as a 3-1/4" Bore X 3-1/4" Stroke "even firing" version of the VE4D / VF4D - which has the same Bore & Stroke dimensions.
I don't have a book for the VH4D, but I do have books for the VE4D & VF4D.
It show these both use the following:
Crank gear GA-36-A
Cam gear GB-45-A
Idler gear GC-27-B-1
My book is old (1946) so I don't know if these part numbers are still good.
Since the difference noted in the description is in the firing order, there would have been changes in the crank and the cam. Whether or not the gears remained the same is a good question that I can't answer with complete confidence. I would say that they would probably bolt up, but would they be in correct time? Which motor are you trying to put what gears in?

John I have 2 books( both printed after 1970) on the VH4D and they both show the numbers you have listed from your 1949 book are the same !
