Can you strip cams back to the aluminum look with out damage to the bearings? Any help would be helpful. Thanks

Tap the bearings out first. :wink:

Set the cam on a surface with a hole (or other void) under the bearing that's larger than the bearing itself. Then reach is from the opposite side of the bearing (the top if it's laying flat) you want to remove, and using a large nail or punch you can tap around the offside bearing until it's pushed out. Then flip it over and repeat, but the second side is easier. And they're even easier to put back in.

Why bump it up? Buster just told you how to do it. Anything that's going to eat the finish away. I sure the hell wouldn't want it on the bearings.

Yup, that's how you remove the bearings. Then you need to soak it in Super Duty oven cleaner (or anything else containing sodium hydroxide, like drain cleaner) until the anodizing is gone, then sand and polish.
