  • modifying cam duration

    I was chatting to a mate of mine who said that you can modify the camshaft duration by applying some weld to keep the valve open longer.

    pretty much stuffed my engine. i think you are better off buying cams instead of getting creative.

        Niiiice!!
        I saw a guy hoist an engine out of a car once by hooking a chain around the cams.
        then again, it was a trash engine..

              that is fairly funny,

              it looks as if the cams in the troll post were really welded so you could get a wrench to hold to tighten the cam bolts to their ungodly-for-having-such-a-****ty-socket tq spec

                Yeah, been there done that. I actually took a file to a set of my cams just to smooth the hex flats and give the wrench something better to hold.

                either that or I'll use my good crescent wrench that locks down pretty well and has silch for play in the adjuster.

                    i ground an old wrench so it would fit fully onto the hex on the cam. looked like this:



                    and it worked like a charm

                        I used vice grips and an impact wrench when I installed the S13 cams in my car...

                          I'd use the impact now! Didn't have one then and it was a PITA... It was much easier taking the cam gear off the junk yard Infiniti SR20 since I really didn't care if I ripped it out of time. LoL
