I popped the heads off in order to remove the broken exhaust studs (one per cylinder)

(I wrote broken head studs....I meant exhaust studs)

Stock camshaft has some strange wear patterns on it which might be part of the previous owner problems with the motor.


Cam will be a 9600 grind from Rabys old store

Intake planned is stock L-Jet, however I can be swayed to install Megasquirt (plenum or ITB) since I already have the Megasquirt.

Exhaust is older European Racing Header.
