    Default 1.4 Virage canshaft specs.

    Hi again.

    This one is aimed at Simon as I think Simon has the Specification books.

    Can you tell me the camshaft specs for a 1.4 Camshaft please?

    many thanks

    All your Renault specification books are belong to us.....

    From the Observer's book of Renault camshafts:

    Inlet opens - 22 degrees BTDC
    Inlet closes - 62 degrees ABDC
    Exhaust opens - 65 degrees BBDC
    Exhaust closes - 25 degrees ATDC

    Note that the camshaft specs for the 847-05 and 847-06 camshafts are the same as the 810-05, 810-06 and 842-05 motors.

    Thanks Simon. I always wondered after I did my 1289 engine up if I did the right thing fitting a Virage 1.4 camshaft at the time. I had 4 camshafts from which to chose and the only one that had any decent meat left on the distributor drive was the 1.4 camshaft, so in it went. The car seems to have bags of tourque and runs extreemly smooth. Top speed is not so great but that's not a problem for me as I hate speeding fines with a vengance!!
    Thanks again for your wealth of knowledge Simon. Hope to see you on a run this year,

    Cheers
    Phil

    I should have also asked if the height of the camshaft lobes are different in the R10 and R10S, and then how different is the 1.4 Virage camshaft lobes to the R10S.
    That's if the information is not top secret by Renault !!

    Cheers Phil

    Just wondering if I have the best height/max opening of the inlet valve and exhaust valve to give me the bigest charge into and out of my cylinders without going to special cam grinds.
