Need to remove a tapered cam drive (for a Joe Hunt mag) that bolts into the end of the camshaft on a unit Triumph. I have the bolt out that secures it on the taper, now I want to get the drive off. Is there a metric thread in there to grab on to with a slide hammer? I couldn't see it with the flashlight but it feels like there might be a thread. British & American bolts I have don't fit. help

Maybe I'm not reading you right Tarvin, but have you got the adapter off, the piece with the 'ears' that attaches to the points-plate's pillar bolt threads ?

Every Hunt setup I've handled has the part that fits into the cam (just as the points' advance unit does) made integral with the bearing in this adapter, whch is sandwiched between the mag body and the timing cover...

hmmmm... must just be stuck on the taper.

I'd find an long allen tool same size as the hex drive, y'know, for leverage... & 'rock' it back & forth...
