Need Camshaft Advice

I think the EVO 001 will be ideal for what you want.

 

I told you there would be so many replies that you would be confused!

,,,,,, i'm currently rebuilding my engine and have found my cam lobes to be visibly worn, which means I NEED a new cam, and as I have a limited budget.

 

 

You can have your old Cam reground back to it's original Profile (unless it's really bad).

 

I often use Clive Cams in Melbourne (Australia) for this Service. The job they do is GOOD, absolutely no issues. Last one I had done cost $103.64 AUD + Postage (That's excluding our local taxes, which you wouldn't be paying).

Pretty quick turn around, usually within the week.

 

but that means that I'd have to post it to australia, and back and pay import taxes (30%) on the final bill as well. doesnt seem worth it to be honest,

 

 

Not exactly sure how your local taxes work, but as it's you Camshaft going out for repair, there's not usually any Taxes applicable, but, fair enough if you don't feel it an option.

car parts here are taxed ruthlessly. its entirely possible that i'd be taxed the estimated value of a new camshaft because it has been sent out and reconditioned...

It always pays to read the Regs:

 

40 to 50 years ago, a very heavy tax was put on silver, gold and jewelry, but a good friend of my father' sold a lot of silver cigarette boxes, side plates and goblets as Communion items because silver church items were exempt.

 

If car parts a heavily taxed, could it be sent as "3rd prize in the Easter Draw"
