I'm removing the cam from a V65 Lario engine (smallblock). The smallblock (V35/50) manual I have shows the cam secured by a bolt at the back of the engine and as there are no securing bolts at the front I guess this is right. How do I remove the cover and get at the bolt or otherwise remove the cam?

Answering my own question - you remove the oil pressure sensor that also loacates the camshaft and then simply pull the cam out!

I had a feeling there wasn't much holding it in.


Better 5 minutes late in this world than years early in the next.

I`ve had 2 V50 engines where the sensor has been screwed back in with no thought given to the locating hole in the bush, thus causing a mangled mess in there. Strangely both cams remained in situ and were undamaged, I have to believe they didn`t leave the factory like that   


you can`t have any fun in a straight line
