Re: NH camshaft in W/NG

Thank you both for your remarks.
I have a spare "4 hole" cam wheel I could press onto the cam to be safe.
Perhaps Paul can answer the question on differing profiles on F cams.
Cheers.

Re: NH camshaft in W/NG

Nev and Simon, To pursue the conversation on the small base, twin lobe cam, the A7/642. Mine is mounted on a cam wheel that has no balance holes. The photo in Cheval, May 2008 shows this cam mounted to a cam wheel having balance holes. Which cam wheel would be correct for this cam or does it matter?...
