4.0L EA-AU Cams

Is it true the EA-EL1 cams r a different billet to the EL2-AU. So an AU cam will not fit an ED without AU rocker gear ??? Thanks


regards

Re: 4.0L EA-AU Cams

au rocker gear wont fit an ed head, as the dowls are drilled in a slighly different spot, basic rule is au 1.8 rockers for au head ,ea-ef rockers (2:1) for ea-ef's

Re: 4.0L EA-AU Cams

yeah its true, the easiest way to tell the EA-EL1 rockers from EL2-AU is that all EL2-AU have straight rockers where as the other ones all the exhaust side has the bent ones. also the AU cam wont line up with the rockers if put into an EA-EL1 with the original rockers.

Re: 4.0L EA-AU Cams

My mistake I read the crow catalogue and thought I saw the same part number for the same cam for the EA and then the AU but it was 2222549 and 2223549 (I think) EvilChief had an AU cam for sale and I was going to slot it in the ED for 0.520" lift with 2.0 ratio. Lucky I didn't !!!
