Rocking the Swiss Alps
I just wanted to give my experience with RJR’s camshafts. Didn’t know where to post this but I figured people looking for new cams would come across this thread.
My background: I had my 2L Nord engine completely rebuilt last winter to original specs. Only thing I optimized was a lightened flywheel. Pretty much every part was replaced, except the camshafts.
Since then I did about 3000 km’s with the „new“ engine. Last week I finally exchanged my old, original camshafts with a set of Richard Jemison’s camshafts (RJR 429/1195). Furthermore, the jetting of the Weber’s was slightly optimized.
I only did about 100+ km’s with the new cams today but it was enough to lure me out of the car and in front of my computer:
The most impressing power range is between 2500 - 4000 revs. The engine develops clearly more torque, compared to the original cams. In the range above 4000 revs, the engine seems to have more „breath“. At the same time, it does it in a rather effortless manner. The engine revs more freely and feels light-footed.
To sum it up, the car feels much more modern to drive while not losing its typical character at all. Without wanting to sound philosophical, the car feels woken up. Only thing that I regret is not having had them already 3000 km’s ago!
