    First look inside the K1 engine - have not seen an exhaust cam like that before.

    • Adjustable sprocket?

    • Not as far as I can see

    • The right side exhaust cam lobe is badly worn - beyond use.

    • Interesting, I wonder if someone fitted a new sprocket at some stage? Maybe it was chewed out and this was his best option, or they have changed the lobe centre angle??

    • No, just an early cam, I got many of those. These cams have the wide lobes .

    • Looks like the original was machined off new one pressed on?

    • Took the head and cylinders off today. Chambers are rust free!

    • The bore is shiny and clean, no grooves, no marks, no rust.

    • And the pistons cleaned up just fine too.

    • The only thing stopping me from splitting the cases is the gear change shaft being well stuck in the sprocket cover. I will give it a week of soaking then resort to violence.

    • Cliff Overton were you aware of the Shepparton swap meet this weekend?

    • Very aware and attending Gavin - will I see you there?

    • Yeah I think so. Bring those parts with you we'll get em sorted!
