Camshaft - Any useable or restorable cam that fits a 1961 3 litre

Postby aerokurt » Sat Dec 17, 2016 2:13 am

Sad to say it is not with the engine. Previous owner had someone incorrectly install the distributor, loosely, thereby destroying the drive gear on the camshaft itself. A friend thought that a shop in Oz could repair it, so sent it out 2 years ago and have heard nothing since.
Meanwhile, I have been charged with the engine's restoration, as the friend is now overwhelmed with other duties.
Very much hoping to find one as close to home as possible. US or Canada. Although beggars can't be choosers.
Any condition including bad lobes is acceptable as we have the facilities here to reprofile the camshaft. Must have a decent distributor drive gear on it and reasonable bearing areas.
Have spoken with Wayne Brooks on the subject.
Cheers,
Kurt

Kurt,

I would suggest that you contact Chris Prince in the UK. He should be able to set you right with a second-hand one or perhaps a new one as I think that he had some made. The alternative is Red Triangle.

Thank you.
In fact, I was able to contact the camshaft maker for Chris here in the States. They are helping us out.
Now we are looking for the skew gear between the distributor and oil pump drive.

Anyone have a good used one?

We've rounded up the usual suspects!
May have to bite the bullet and buy new, if I cannot invent something of a solution.
Cheers, Kurt

Kurt,

RT lists the part as C06030, have you checked to see if they have one in stock? Likewise Chris Prince may have one. If you draw a blank get back to me.


Happy Christmas,
