2 3/4hp cams
« on: 20 Jun 2010 at 21:01 »
Hi All
I have come across a cam for a 2 3/4hp with a 5 stamped on it. My TS model has a cam with 5B which I'm lead to believe is the standard where as 5A is supposed to be slightly "Hotter" but not so common. But I've never seen one with just 5, can anyone shed any light on this?

Thanks for that, I was sure there was something on the forum but I couldn't find it. I probably put a word in the search box it didn't like.
