Re: how to identify cams

IMS you can't physically interchange them. Exhaust can only go in exhaust side and intake in intake side.

Someone correct me if I'm remembering this wrong....

Re: how to identify cams

cam lobes vs bearing journals spacing should dictate which fits where

Re: how to identify cams

Thanks,

Do I have to remove the rocker shaft to mount the camshaft ?
Can someone provide me where to find a manual or a copy for a TIII head (I also need to change some rockers) giving procedure and torques ?

Cams slide in from front of head, so yes, remove rocker shafts first. Also be very careful sliding the cams in, you want to go Gently! Don't want to damage/ scuff journals.

Shot you some specs to keep you on the right track ;)
