I was fearing that it would be one of those resistor-things

As it stands, that probably would give you at least 5bhp at a guess. What price for 5bhp, I wonder...

Re: Worth buying ? :)

the 75 camshaft has slightly longer duration (IIRC, something like that) than the ones in the 55 and (early) 60 engines, they are all interchangeable (although they may need re-shimming)

which means that it will give slightly better power and torque, i think the agreed figure is around 5 bhp

i have one sitting at home to be sold, no-one wants to pay my price for it....

I know someone who may buy it if your not being to greedy and I can pick it up when we swap our wheels . He wants to put it into his 1108cc Sei Sporting.

Re: Worth buying ? :)

nope, but ideally you should torque down the shaft caps when re-tightening, plus you NEED to check clearences between tappet shims and the cam lobes, with feeler gauges,and get it re-shimmed if necessary.
it took me about 3 hours (very slow work, though, and i made it hard for myself) to do mine, but i was lucky, all the shims were within tolerance.

plus, if you have a later punto 60, apparently they already have this camshaft in, stamped "899" (or 866, depends which way up you look at it, forgotten which one is correct)
mine already had an 899 cam in, it was a 1998 model - i had already swapped the cams before i learnt that it already had the right one in

yup

and stupid me, i forgot to line the timing up properly, so much of the time was spend lining up the crank positon and looking at haynes manuals

if i were doing it again, it would probably only take an hour, including checking tolerances.
