Use only the manufacturer recommended lubricant, which is generally included with the cam. This lubricant must be applied to every cam lobe surface, and to the bottom of every lifter face of all flat tappet cams. Roller tappet cams only require engine oil to be applied to the lifters and cam.

While the main purpose of a crank is obvious, it has many other demands placed upon it. Rotating constantly as it does, it is ideal for taking drives to other assemblies such as pumps. While it is possible to drive pumps electrically – and there are some advantages to doing this – it is banned in some forms of motorsport, and the vast majority of series-production engines drive their pumps mechanically.

Adjustable Camshaft Gears – Perfect for Engine Tuning
Adjustable camshaft gears are the perfect combination for sports camshafts in engine tuning. Since high-lift cams have different control times due to a modified contour, adjustable camshaft gears are needed for this. While the adjustment of a conventional camshaft gear only permits rigid control times, the optimum control time of a sports camshaft is exactly in between. This value can be easily reached with an adjustable camshaft gear. In our shop, you get matching gears for many engines, e.g.:

Continental first introduced this thicker camshaft gear in August of 2005 and started installing it in its factory new and rebuilt engines. But it wasn’t until November 2009 that it started asking field overhaul shops to install the newer-style gear at engine overhaul. Since it did so in a service bulletin (SB97-6B), almost all overhaul shops considered it to be non-compulsory, and therefore almost all field overhauled engines had their older-style camshaft gears reused.
Integrated Engineering Billet Adjustable Camshaft Gear, Cam Gear Kit for 058 1.8T
When installing an Integrated Engineering billet cam gear on your race engine, an ARP cam gear bolt and an EKagrip friction disk are recommended to keep the timing components in place under high load/high RPM use. With the added stress of larger cams and stiffer valve springs, the factory interface can become weakened and fail under high RPM use. We offer this full cam gear kit to make the installation process simple, with all of the needed parts included. Purchase together and save!
