EA & EF Cams

Ok I need some info, to see as to why my
DA 94 cam chewed out my head & left enough alloy through the engine to make a couple of tin cans.
Before it was a DA 87.
Is there a diffrence in the 2,3,4,5 & 6 journals cos 1 & 7 are fine.

Check the part number with Ford, make sure it wasnt an AU cam.

Re: EA & EF Cams

Re: EA & EF Cams

rockers are fine, bar one pedestal. all the chewing has been done on the head in the journals where the cam sits.

Re: EA & EF Cams

no, they had WR2A stamped on them. sounds to me like lack of oil on the journals

Re: EA & EF Cams

There is oil in the journals, but I have been getting low oil pressure since I put in the cam, is there any reason for this?

Re: EA & EF Cams

if youre rocker posts arnt bolted down corectly, you will loose oil pressure from the journas.. even a lil piece of dirt is enuf to let the oil escape from between the head and the rocker posts, this reduces the oil pressure going to the cam, but prob not enuf to cause what happend to u... was the cam rusty or rolling around in dirt when it went in
