    Homestar. I reused the old cam. I did a visual on all the bearing surfaces and bearings and they looked good. I bought a replacement bearing for the very front longer bearing as it had a few scoring marks in the soft metal. If your chasing a cam I have 2 donor engines. Unsure of the condition however.

    Unrelated to the 2.6l rebuild but took my 2.25 petrol ex telecom landy for a run around this saturday up the highest place at home. Generally went really well but has a few snags. Pics for those who are interested.

    So got my engine all back today this weekend. I got the side valves in and timing sprockets and chain in a while ago. All went pretty well. Put a new Iwis timing chain in it. I was surprised of the good condition of the brass coolant directors, they cleaned up really well.

    One thing that was interesting was these cast aluminium brackets that the inlet rockers rub up against. On the engine I had pulled apart someone had made washers to shim these brackets out to avoid the side spring pressure slowly bending these brackets inward and causing uneven wear. You can see the difference between two brackets below (the bent one is from another spare parts engine, on the right). This was a good mod I reakon and reinstalled them the way they came out.

    Got the head torqued down and the other bits and pieces onto it. Just ordered a carby rebuild kit and another clutch plate and it should be good to go I reakon.
