that would be a probable no. they wouldnt suit each other at all, the teeth would be completely different in shape on a chain drive
I do not believe that they are interchangeable because the mounting points on the end of the cam are likely different between the chain driven and belt driven variants. I would also image the length of the cam would vary as well due to the difference in the driving mechanism.
thanks, after scouring the internet and talking to hundreds of different people, i have finally found someone who has a camshaft for a 316i with a belt drive. now this gives me the other obvious question.
Is the 316i camshaft the same as the 318i camshaft. surely the only difference between a 1.6 and 1.8 is the size of the pistons and cylinders.
look forward to your reply, thanks.
thanks, but i have since learned that the camshaft for the 316 & 318 are infact the same camshaft, if you try and purchase one you will find that one cam fits both... headache solved.
