    Camshaft C-85

    I have a Continental C-85. trouble is the camshaft is broken and can not be used. I can change the camshaft from 0-200 or C90 and hydraulic valve lifter instead?

    Maybe. The other two cams require some machining of the crankcase as the valve lifter bodies that contact the camshaft are a different size. There's a Continental Service Bulletin M47-16 Supplement 1 1960 that allows some component exchanges to convert a C-85 to a C-90. But that's not what you're after...you likely just need another serviceable C-85 camshaft.

    Others here likely know of more sources but I'd try these:

    https://www.aircraftspecialties.aero
    https://lycon.com
    https://www.superiorairparts.com

    Or ask for used parts here. Like "Wanted: C-85 camshaft" Typically it's P/N 40584.

    I'm sure there's some up here in Alaska. I asked a good friend in Anchorage via mail to ask around as he deals in aircraft parts often.
