Author Topic:   Camshaft polishing?
posted June 15, 2004 01:13 PM
I've got a good Camcraft cam that came out of a blown up engine (piston exploded). None of the lobes of the cams got taken out, but there's "smear" marks from the aluminum piston on several lobes.

Question: Can the smudges be polished off with say fine emery cloth? Or how can I clean up the cam to reuse? I hate to pitch a good Camcraft cam....

Muriatic acid and 1000grit wet/dry paper....
