Kent camshaft

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

Whilst crawling into my stock of parts, I've found a NOS (ie old, but brand new), boxed "fast road" Kent camshaft, labelled as TH5/6, apparently similar to this https://www.moss-europe.co.uk/camshaft-fast-road-small-journal-new-212164-th5.html

I strictly don't know it if it's a good camshaft, or if it's one of these poor quality part who won't last long : do you have experience to share ?

Cheers,

Chris.

I had Kent TH12-6 (270) now installed TH5-6 (280) and second engine will be getting TH6-6 (290). No problems so far. Heard of issues with roundness of the shaft and someone loosing a cam. But the ones I know are happy with the brand.

Hi Chris - Isn't that for 4 cylinder engines?

Well, senior moment I guess : I've made some search following your reply, and it seems that I've already posted something about this camshaft 7 years ago on this forum.

Where can I buy a new brain ?

 

The right link https://www.kentcams.com/part/TH5-6?manufacturer=33&model=180&engine=119

More seriously, I still don't know if this camshaft is, once coupled with recommended accessoiries and correctly fitted, reliable or not, especially as the one I have is an "old" model : the more recently made ones might be better (or not !) ?

Mine is wearing  "Stanpart" in the casting, as if it has been made from a stock camshaft.
