Ebay used cam and caps

Recommended Posts

My ebay cam just arrived and I have noticed that the bearings move on the shaft from side to side. They spin nice don't feel like they are toast but are they supposed to move on the cam shaft from side to side?

So I take the cam down to the local Honda dealer and the tech tells me the cam is no good if the bearing slide from side to side? I said " i was told this is normal, now if they have play within the bearing that's not good". He says 'according to my shop manual they shouldn't move at all?  Days like this I miss my 2 stroke. Dont get me wrong im all for a thumper but wow this is getting to become a headache. end rant!

turn the outer race of each bearing with your finger .
the bearing should turn smoothly and quietly
also check that the bearing inner races fit tightly in the cam shaft
replace the camshaft if the bearing do not turn smoothly,quietly'or if ther fit loosely on the camshaft
why dont you just get yourself a service manual
