    hi
    does any body have a camshaft bearing cap laying about.
    Its the one that holds the front oil seal behind the cam/pump pulley.
    thank you in advance.

    you cant really just swap a cap...

    The cam bearings are line bored with the caps torqued down. A cap from a different engine wont be the same as the one on your engine.

    Hi
    I have not got a pictureas it is still fitted.
    Its the bearing that hols the cam and oil seal at the front of the head.
    It has a bit sticking up from the top with a threaded hole in.
    The bit tha is broken on mine is the part that holds the oil seal,i was going to weld
    A bit off the replacement to it.
    thanks.dave
