Cam identity?

PostPost by: vincereynard » Sun Jun 18, 2017 4:20 pm

There are no Inlet / Exhaust marks on my cams.

I have marked them with a permanent marker, but if I was to make a mistake, how could I tell the difference?

The cams are identical. its the chain sprockets that are different. The exhaust sprocket is normally etched with "Ex" the inlet sprocket is nominally plain.

Thanks Rohan. Just checking!
