Hello d-series, well I decided to change out my old dizzy for a newer dizzy because old one was worn and looked old. well when I pulled the old dizzy out I saw that the cam shaft piece broke here is a pic I was like ooh shit I decided to pull the broken little piece out of the head and put the newer dizzy on it works fine but my question is I know I need to change the cam shaft out but have no money right now to change it, what do you guys think how long would this hold up and is it hard to change out the shaft out if I did it myself? sorry for the picture its from my cell phone

you're dizzy will not properly ingage if at all. id let the car sit until you have a new cam. i say you get a cheap stg 1 cam. gl with all of this. oh, how did you manage to break your cam by just taking off the dizzy!?

Well I put it all together and it fire'd right up and I drove it around and it looks like it will hold up. but I don't know how it broke I think it broke before I pull'd the dizzy off it was sitting there broke until I pull'd it off and it fell I was able to get the broken piece out of the head.

Honestly, with the high stress of daily driving, you should keep your car parked until you replace that camshaft. The high revolutions the cams endure during driving will tear apart your dizzy and camshaft in a hurry. The compression and tensile strength of the metal [in your cam] is already compromised. With enough force your cam will either a) destroy your distributor b) become dislodged due to imbalance weight, thus imbalanced rotations or c) destroy your valve train because of being improperly harmonized through the revolutions. let it sit. for your own sake.

I would park it till you have a new cam. Dont wanna risk messing up new dizzy. You should be able to find a camshaft cheep. I have a stock one you can have but its for a z6, and not sure if it will fit.

Z6 and A6 cams have the same length and rod size, whereas the Y8 is larger. The v-tec lobes on the z6 rod will not actuate if installed on a non-vtec A6 head.

You have your info all mixed up, I don't even know where to start.
