The Camshafts

Step 01

Fit the Left Exhaust Camshaft into this lower groove of the Left Cylinder Head.

Note that the Intake Camshafts have the longer keyed post on the end of them, compared to the shorter keyed post of the Exhaust Camshafts we need in this step:

When placing the camshafts, be sure the keyed posts poke out the front of the engine, as shown. I also recommend adding a drop of lubricating oil to these sections of the camshaft after fitting to allow it to rotate easier. We can use our 3-in-One Oil here:

Fit the Left Intake Camshaft into this upper groove of the Left Cylinder Head.

Again, I recommend adding a drop of lubricating oil to each of these sections of the camshaft after you fit it:

Step 02

Fit three Camshaft Caps over the Left Exhaust Camshaft as shown, aligning the screw holes.

The Camshaft Caps have a low and high side:

The ‘low’ side of each Camshaft Cap should be fitted towards the center of the engine:

Secure these Camshaft Caps into place with four (4) JP screws, as shown.

The ‘cutaway’ section of the engine causes two of these Camshaft Caps to not have lower screws installed:

In the same way, fit three Camshaft Caps over the Left Intake Camshaft as shown, aligning the screw holes.

Again, the ‘low’ side of the caps should be towards the center of the engine:

Secure these Camshaft Caps into place with six (6) JP screws, as shown:

From the front, you can see how I oriented the Camshaft Caps:

Step 03

Fit the Right Exhaust Camshaft into this lower groove of the Right Cylinder Head.

It seems that the parts list for this pack has these parts labelled backwards. Just remember, the Exhaust Camshafts have the shorter keyed post:

Step 04

In the same way, fit the Right Intake Camshaft into this upper groove of the Right Cylinder Head.

These two right-side Camshafts are not full-length as they will be hidden by the Right Rocker Cover in Engine Pack 11. Note the longer keyed post of this Intake Camshaft. Again, I recommend oiling these sections (arrows below) of the camshafts after fitting them:

Steps 05 – 06

Fit Camshaft Caps over these Right Camshafts as shown, aligning the screw holes:

Secure the Camshaft Caps into place with four (4) JP screws, as shown:

Thoughts


These camshafts are very nice, and they do contact the Tappets to open the valves, but not very much. I am just excited they work!
