The camshaft activates a cylinder's intake and exhaust valves. One lobe will activate the intake valve, followed by a second lobe that activates the exhaust valve. As the shaft rotates, the valves will open and close in the appropriate timing.
How do I know if my camshafts are worn out?
Signs of a damaged camshaft:
Temper and burst. Cylinder misfires at low and very high rpm. The valve makes a loud knocking sound
Causes of camshaft problems:
Failures are usually due to one (or more) of the following: insufficient lubrication, improper break-in, re-use of old/worn parts, mechanical interference, and poor quality/not torqued hardware to specification. Always use the camshaft molybdenum paste that comes with the flat lifter camshaft kit.
