Where do you find parts for a cosworth engine?
Cam belts, distributor belts. gaskets.. valves bearings etc?
I know they raced these in Midget cars for a while before they were outlawed..
so what about hot cams?

Hi HOff,

Best source for the parts you mentioned is....

Forget the hot cams if you intend on driving it on the street. The engine has a completely useless power band. I would entertain the thought of reindexing the factory cam sprockets - the CVOA offers this service - and it really wakes up the bottom end - or as I say - the way we drive these cars daily on the street. (one thing though - I sure do miss the KICK you got at 4000+ rpm when the cam came on - with the stock sprocket timing.

You will need a Timing Belt Tensioner tool for any maintenance work with the water pump, timing belt, cams, or oil pump/oil seal.
In case you are interested...
