What is a Camshaft? The camshaft is a rotating shaft that's responsible for valve timing. It must correctly time the opening of the intake and exhaust valves during each piston stroke. If the timing is off, the air, fuel, and exhaust won't flow properly through the cylinder. Therefore, the camshaft plays a significant role in the power and efficiency of the engine for your lawn mower or any other small engine equipment.
Many manufacturers recommend replacing the camshaft when you replace the crankshaft. A new camshaft will extend the life and improve the performance of your engine.
