The inner side id of the cam is slightly smaller than that of the outer. The fixing screw (normally a cheese head) sits inside the outer face of the cam with a small spring washer under it.

When replacing the cam, I find it easier if I hold the woodruff just key proud using a suitable drift (instrument screwdriver, etc) or often the cam just pushes the key down into the shaft. Put the cam over the drift first, then introduce them at the same time. Lookout for the tiny key jumping out!

Thanks for the tip.

No spring washer and the screw/bolt isn't a cheese head. I there a recommended dealer who can supply these parts?

Sorry, its just dawned on me that the bolt/washer/cam are actually engine parts, not ignition parts so I might be able to get them from one of the usual parts suppliers, Draganfly, Bournemouth Bantams etc.

Thanks for the offer. I will have a fiddle over next couple of weeks and let you know. Im not sure if I will need the cam, probably just the screw, flat washer and locking washer. Do you have these? Alan

Used my new digital vernier for first time yeaterday. Surprised to find reading for rear spindle was .40 inch/11mm. I believe this is 7/16 when converted. I was expecting 1/2 inch.

Strange.
