I have the simliar type of design not saying its an S&S cam in my brigss motor 18.5 hp and it stuck open that means the spring broke. How did I have to fix it???
Take it apart. replace cam assy.
How did I know . No compression or very little.
Not basshing the cams just not sure of them at this time.. Just waiting. I test everything before I sell them..
I'll stick to the old S&S cams for now.
Again its just my 2 cents....
I'm with you on this one, I seem to remember that cam style on one of my 2 strokes when I was younger and it ended up screwing up.
I'm sure technology has marched forward and I admire the guys who forge ahead with the "first off" stuff, but not for me - don't want to re-invent the wheel and it would bug me in the back of the brain on the long roadtrips. I can yank comp. releases anywhere and soak them down in wd40......
