    Sure go ahead just remember this IF CAM TIMING GEAR MOUNTING FAILS PISTONS WILL HAVE TO SHARE THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER WITH OPEN VALVES. You can ALSO expect to replace your ENGINE HEAD/PISTONS EVEN BROKEN RODS/CRANK!!!
    So checkout part prices first then decide how fat is your wallet/purse. Cams aren't hard to replace/weld your stress crack won't get better and there's more strain on less metal.
    Great choices, paddle back to the launch ramp with a blown engine, or get it fixed and consider yourself very lucky it hasn't broken yet, as for me due to financial constraints, the light at the end of the tunnel has been extinguished Ed

    FYI the yamaha 1.8L engine is a non interference motor, the pistons will not hit the valves, found this when i bought my SHO motor with all 8 exhaust valves stuck open to full lift and the pistons never hit the valves !!!!!!

    Does that only applies with 8.6:1 low comp pistons or is it also the case when running high comp pistons?

    Thanks, Julio...
