This is an interesting item. It was newly manufactured during a brief development programme to remanufacture Merlin Camshafts.
This was necessary as there was a world shortage of camshafts for flight-worthy merlin engines to power Battle of Britain aircraft.
This is one of three that have been manufactured since Merlin engines ceased production. I cannot confirm if this is a fully compliant component as this was apparently part of a development first run
NOT FOR USE AS A SPARE PART – STRICTLY FOR DISPLAY PURPOSES ONLY.
A beautifully crafted and tactile item. It has been mounted on an oak base and held at each end with brass supporting pillars and machined end bearings which enable the piece to be rotated and admired.
It is nicely presented in the original manufacturers box. Can sit on a desk or be wall-mounted
