I reassemble the engine of my T100R Daytona ´69.
I changed the camshaft bushes in the housing and reamed them with a special tool in line.
Crankshaft rotates excellent the camshafts too. Nothing wrong.
When I assembled the camwheels the exhaust cam didn´t rotate free. I used the Triumph special tool to get the camwheel onto the camshaft. The camshaft rotates 3/4 and then it was hard to rotate by hand. It sounded as the camwheel rub somewhere.
Then I thought the camwheel is not 100% square on the shaft and with an aluminium mallet I hammered the camwheel while I rotated it by hand.
After that it was far better. No rubbing but even that it is easily to rotate by hand there is one position where it needs more force to rotate. I didn`t torque
the camwheel nuts yet. The camshaft has VERY little sideplay.
What to do now? Any ideas?
Or will it be better when I torqued the camwheel nuts down?
Thank you, Martin
