It looks like it mate. You might want to get your brother inlaw to check the arms but as a rule if the cams wearing then the rest of it is aswell.
We always change the arms if the cam lobes where the arm sits is worn.

He lives in Jersey so is only over for the weekend else wouldn't of been an issue he would of just done it all for me :(

Love the pd150 but the chocolate cam makes buying one a game of Russian roulette. Shame really :(

Ahh well it depends on which lobes are worn to if you need to touch the injector arms

All the kits are redesigned so you won't have the problem again

thanks, could worn/faulty cams give the symptoms I have (other than the rattle on acceleration) of not starting first time of the day, hissing from the fuel filter and dying on hills?

thats it on idle, dont have any of it under acceleration, not sure if that is any indicator as I can hear anything other than the hissing wrong.
