Hi guys,

Do you do anything to prevent the keyless cam sprockets from sliding on a silvertop Zetec. Looks like my exhaust one has moved slightly.

Aren't they just meant to be torqued down to keep then in place ?

do you have any pics ?

Yeah that's what I thought. When I built it, I turned the engine around a couple of times and tried the aligning tool, all lined up perfectly.
Stripped it down yesterday and exhaust cam was abouts degrees out!

You could pin the wheel to the cam or use the Cosworth Duratec friction washers that Burton power sell, Iíve added them to my Duratec build

Hi ya,

Have you a link to the washer? How do they work?
