now who is the wizard on this? IS THE CAM ROTATION RPM THE SAME FRO A 16V AS A 8V , GIVING THAT THE TWO BELTS HAVE MORE TEETH ?
ie: will the 16v cams move at the wrong speed because of the 8v belt being used. i see it as the same speed as long as i have the 8v crank gear and the 8v cam gear.
to much thinking
Cam Gear rotation is the same.
I was wondering the same thing, (mod'ing the 44 tooth 8v cam gear to work on 16v cam using the adj sprockets). I know the adj cam gears guts likely won't interchange w/o some work, but that seems minimal.
Since (2 revs of motor = 1 rev of cam):
8V = 22/44 = .5
16V =26/52 = .5
Is the 16V belt is wider and stronger than the 8V (thus the need for machining the back of the crank pulley to pull it back in)? ..maybe an alignment issue that can be corrected with the mod'ed cam gear?
