My Lucas D1 engine is stashed away, so I refer you to this thread... [Permission to view this media is denied]

Please check post No15 where threads are shown within the cam, presumably for application of bolt for extraction purposes....as JS hints to in the following post, No16.

Soak in Plusgas overnight, firstly.

Good luck

Sadly the cam has to come off and its key then the tool is used to remove the rotor.Looking at the pics on the other thread it may be slightly peened on too.Clean up the outer face so a clear join can be seen .If you have a blowlamp ..put a shield behind and around the cam put a bolt in the extractor hole.Now gently heat the cam.Stop and smear a bit of soap on the cleaned up face.you shoulsave a nice black ring shewing that the cam is not peened to the shaft.If so heat up cam to dull red.may crack .when hand hot add penetrant and wait.If not dress out any staking and proceed.
