What Are Cam Bearings?
A vehicle’s camshaft works in close synchronicity with the crankshaft to provide power to drive the vehicle. While the crankshaft directly operates the pistons, the camshaft is responHsible for opening and closing the valves to provide the right mixture for explosive compression.
The camshaft is a cylindrical shaft that opens and close the valves. To host the camshaft and allow rotation, cam bearings are installed into “bearing bores” and specifically designed so that they are adequately lubricated during operation.
