    I've installed new Triumph unit cam bushes, not the pre-unit sort, though they won't be any different in this regard. The "pre-sizing" refers only to the OD (no matter what the manufacturer might claim) not the ID.

    New bushes will absolutely have to be line-reamed in place before the cams will fit properly - or at all!
