Section VIII. Engine Front Cover, Camshaft, Balance Shaft, and Timing Gears
Camshaft and Balance Shaft
Camshaft and balance shafts are located near top of cylinder block. Camshaft actuates valve and fuel
Both ends of camshaft and balance shaft are supported by bearings. In addition, two intermediate
bearings and a center bearing support camshaft.
On both cam and balance shafts, thrust load is absorbed by two thrust washers on each end of rear end
A helical drive gear with a counterweight is secured to cam and balance shafts with a Woodruff key and
hexnut. Drive gears are attached to ends of cam and balance shafts.
To help maintain engine balance, a solid weight is attached on front end of shaft.
A completely enclosed train of five helical gears (Figure 6-23) is located at rear of engine. A gear bolted to
crankshaft flange drives camshaft and balance shaft gears, as well as blower drive gear, through an idler gear mounted
between crankshaft and balance shaft gears.
