should i buy it?

#1 Unread post by Johnny Gaijin »

i e-mailed him and this is what he said:

found out today that the camshaft has some play probably because of a bearing. If you are ok with this please let me know, and I will still hear an offer

i've worked on carbs before but nothing big like this...
how big of a job is this?
what would a repair bill cost?
i know what a camshaft does but i don't know how big of a deal it is to have "some play" or what bearing he's talking about.

thanks in advance!

The cam shaft is steel, rides in the aluminum head. When the cam shaft has play, it usually means a head replacement as the aluminum head beariung surfaces have worn away.

There may be other options, but I am not aware of them.
