Does anyone know if the inlet and exhaust cams are the same on this engine?
If not how do you tell them apart?
well the part numbers are different. I presume if they are GM part they must have the number stamped somewhere on the shank.
inlet - 90444332
exh - 90486981
bit of an anorak info for you, they are the same cams as the 1600.
They are reprofiled courtenay cams, I dont think they have the part numbers on them, and through the naked eye we couldn't tell any differnce.
Any idea's how to tell the difference?
Are they the same as Corsa Gsi ones as well?
if they are regrinds then they started as standard cams.
I dont know how to identify them, as you say, they are identical by eye. there has to be some other distinguishig marks, but i dont know what mark means what.
If they are Courtenay regrinds, chances are Courtenay will be able to tell you. Especially as they're probably the people who marked them!
I tried ringing coutenays yesterday morning (saturday) before I posted this but there was no answer!
I'll ring them tomorrow.
Thanks for the advice.
I rang courtenays this morning and they said they are the same!
So there you go!
Really?? wow, thats quite odd to have an exhaust cam the same as the inlet cam exactly...
Stick them in and see how it goes then. I doubt stock ones are the same though.
