Default 120S and 125A camshaft query

Can I replace the camshaft in my 120S with one from a 125A? The one in my 120S is very worn and I have a wrecked 125A I can salvage the camshaft from.

Nope, the FA-120 is a big block and the 125 uses the small/medium block cam.

Any cam from a big block or big block derived multi will fit with the exception of the port side cam for twins. That includes the various FG versions.

Go to Horizon Search for Saito M

Thee engine code for the 1.20-S is M, here's a couple of pages of stuff for them. The cam is in stock.

So did you let out a scream just for the fun of it?

When I was very young my Grandfather had a 1933 model A with a V-8 60. I doubt that he ever went farther from home than 20 miles in it.

My uncle had a 32 Model A. Mom said he had a magneto hooked up to charge the body with electricity when runningand was always calling people over to the car to see if they would touch it. Shocking to say the least! He was an ornery cuss when he was young!

With the exception of valves and pushrods, all big block Saito valve train components have an SAI120S part number prefix. The cam in question is part # SAI120S35. As Hobbsy pointed out, they ARE IN STOCK.

Cool Saito 90 twin jammed up after sitting for years

I have a Saito 90 twin, the on that looks like the valve covers are Continental. I can't get it turn over a full revolution. No prop attached just turning it by hand. What can I soak it in that will loosen up the crud???
I've opened up the intake and exhaust ports so I can get solvent in the ports. some of the valves are stuck. Any ideas????

Denatured Alcohol. Then once it is all cleaned, spray in some after run or fogging oil.

Put it in your over at 275 F for about 20 minutes should free it up. Then turn it over and add after run oil.

Wouldn't that effectively function as a kill switch?

Why is this page, and only this page, HUGE? It runs about 30% off the right edge of the page.

Evendently not but I imagine he would have to isolate body somehow to make it work. I had several people who knew him an my mom tell me about the first time they touched my uncle's car when he was sitting there idling and getting the shock of their lives.

<br /><br />You may or may not have to work the valve pockets slightly for piston/valve clearance. You need about .015" minimum. I took a Dremel with drum sander to mine. The blue area was modified. You only need to move the pocket slightly out towards the edge. There is plenty of depth.<br /><br /><a href="https://imgur.com/hf0ztB8"><img src="http://i.imgur.com/hf0ztB8.jpg"/></a>
