There are 2 different 928 cam tool sets. there is the 9226 which comes with the saddles to bolt the cams down, the threaded studs that allow you to bolt them down to the heads and a couple of plates to time the cams. These are documented for the early 32v engines, and then there is the 9248 which are just the saddles, and are supposed to be used on the S4 and later engines.
do the early 32v heads have different cam spacing than the S4 and later heads? I've never had one of each to compare
Are you asking if you can use the 9248 saddles on an S3?
I am 99.99% certain the answer is yes. Why else would it be possible for people to cut the ends off the S3 cams and use them in 87+ heads?
I am 100% that I don’t like those factory-tool cam saddles. I’ve used them according to the WSM, then according to WSM with additional “sense” and came to the conclusion that they are a time waster even if you use them correctly with additional “sense.”
