The stock VW "Flat Cam" Camshaft comes with a riveted on standard drive gear and fits 1200cc(40hp) - 1600cc Type 1 based engines, The Flat Cam can be used in later model engines but must be used with a compatible oil pump. The flat cam style camshaft was used by VW in 1961 through 1971 Standard Beetles, 1971 Super Beetles, 1961 through 1971 Karmann Ghias, 1961 through 1971 Type 2 Bus models and 1962 through 1971 Type 3 Squareback, Notchback and Fastbacks.

We offer the flat camshaft with -2,-1,0,+1 or +2 Gear Pitches so you can make sure the cam meshes well with the drive gear. More often than not, especially with new drive gears, a 0 pitch cam is used. Select your cam at the drop down menu above.

The stock replacement cam has lobes with .332"/.310" of lift and 224/228 degrees of duration at 1.1:1. The cam lift is .210/.215" at .050" and the camshaft has 192/195 degrees of duration. The lobe centers are at 108 degrees and the cam can be use with 1.1:1 (stock VW), 1.25:1 or 1.4:1 rockers. New lifters should be installed whenever installing a new camshaft.

We recommend using an engine oil with ZDDP or ZDTP or a ZDDP/ZDTP additive in your oil for all flat tappet camshaft engines.
