Well, today's mail brought treasure in the form of a 67-695 cam and bits of Longstroke engine off e-bay. Was described as Plunger A7/A10 parts and I was the lone bidder. Postage nearly matched bid price, and while worn, the cam is not bad, suitable for a core to send to Newman.

Will update as I go along to see what Newman can do for me.

Morning

Yes Newman cams did rework my spare cam shaft.

BSA A7 Cam Grind and Heat Treat @ GBP45
BSA A7 Cam Followers Grind H/Treat @GBP17.50 each = GBP70.00

Service was great and work looks good. I have not had chance to fit it to bike yet (gathering the necessary for complete bottom end rebuild) so don;t know about fit and performance yet.

My e-bay find has more wear than expected, and may be too far worn for Newman to regrind (accordning to specs on their website) . May have to plunge for a new one.   *sad2*
