Single Lobe Cam Followers

Postby tony.barnett » Mon Sep 21, 2020 9:20 am

Morning

Anyone got a set of single lobe cam followers for sale? My VH ones are showing a lip.

Cheers

Hmmm,
Wonder where it went then! Anyway, I’ve got a couple but I’m on hols at the moment. So if you’re not suited shortly, next week I’ll hunt them out and see their condition and discuss with you.
Regards from MikeN.

The wide lobes wear better than the early ones, so I'd like to know why the wear? All that hard metal goes through the engine. You can often see it in the oil in the tank, when it's stirred up. IF you don't use the really strong valve springs, why is it happening? Nev

I wouldn't say they were completely cream crackered - one of the followers has a slight lip so I though it best to ask whether there were any out there as replacements as I have the engine completely in bits. The engine had clearly seen some action though - plenty of swarf in the timing chest and a cracked piston. Oddly the cylinder bore is barely worn with no obvious damage.

If there aren't any out there at a reasonable price I'll just get them refaced but I thought it best to ask first.

I thought single spares had some made a year or so back.

Yes they did, but I'm just exploring the market ;-)

Refacing the wide ones particularly needs some care as you want them to contact across the entire surface evenly and varying the profile will change timing a bit. Probably best done on a Tool and Cutter grinder. Nev
