    Reprofiling cams

    Reprofiling cams
    Ok may be a silly question but how does this work or how is it done if a cam is worn down how do they make it new again

    some can add material to cams to provide the right profile - personally id stay clear of this if the cams are definitely worn and instead get some made from fresh blanks

    otherwise if the cams are in good condition they are simply reground to the correct profile by shaving material off rather than adding to it!

    budget about £200 extra for a pair made from blanks compared to those from standards
