Hi all, I'm after as much advice as possible. As anyone changed the cam Bearings themselves or should it be left to an expert?

coincidence! I am just looking at mine, and wondering the same. I think you need a special tool to pull them out & push new ones in; then there's the question of alignment; and then should they be honed to final size, or not? If nobody on here comes up with the definitive answers, I shall take mine to a pro shop .

Fittings not too hard, they do however need line boring after so I would have a friendly machinist do it
