Hi Al ,

I`ve got a spare pair of SE Cams ... which ideally I would like to swap for a pair of QED 420 Cams ....

Or , I have a pair of QED 450 cams ... which if anybody else wants to swap for 420`s , is also a goer ...

Cheers ,

Paul .

Hi there Paul,

I don't have a pair of 420 cams to swap unfortunately - could you send me some photos of the S/E to give me an idea of their condition please?

Cheers.

Hi Gino,

The factory ones had 1 groove. However, a re-ground original S/E spec cam can also have one groove, but not be S/E spec!

If you find some "1 groove" cams please PM me and we can go from there after seeing their condition and spec.

Cheers.

I'm looking for a pair too! My ebay "success" was rubbish with 0.004" wear on some bearings when I measured them.

Hi Gino,

Would you want to sell the cams and the head together? I need both.

What are the specs on the cams, if you have? I'm not looking for stock, but beggars can't be choosers... :wink:

Thanks,
Tony

Yes, I guess it would cost a bit, but what about this is cheap?

Anyway, are you interested in parting with the head?
