Camshaft for trucks

The camshaft opens and closes the engine’s intake and exhaust valves at the right time. This is achieved via an exact stroke and a precisely defined sequence. A broken camshaft immediately follows up in the truck to shut down. Here at BAS Parts we have an amount of over 70 camshafts on stock. New, used and remanufactured.

Short explanation

The camshaft is driven by the crankshaft via gears and timing belts. With a transmission ratio of 2:1, the camshaft rotates only half as fast as the crankshaft. The precise shape of the cams is crucial for ensuring the correct opening time and valve lift. The steel used in their production is characterised by high wear resistance. Induction hardening of the camshaft prevents micro-cracks in its surface and increases its service life.
 

Mounting tips

If the camshaft is replaced, the bearings must also be replaced and the attached components checked. They must also be checked for proper functioning after a camshaft adjustment. It is also essential to check the oil supply to the lubrication points. During the subsequent assembly, the correct valve play, the correct assembly torques, as well as the tightening sequence and alignment with the crankshaft must be adhered to (as per the vehicle manufacturer’s instructions) in order to prevent incorrect loading and thus early failure of the camshaft.
 

Transport

We can deliver the camshaft to Western Europe, Eastern Europe, South-America, Africa, Australia, Asia and the Middle East. We have multiple transport partners so that we can make sure your shipment will arrive in time. By road, sea or airfreight.
