Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Thanks Ron. I'm trying to utilize a cam that's been sitting for a number of years. Not trying for any performance over stock, just trying to get another one running. I seem to have come upon a...

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

flatrod, I repeat from an earlier post, the cam ran fine in my car a number of years ago. The cam now is in another engine. The engine will not time correctly with a setup stock helmet type Ford...

Re: Snyder 5.5 head

Ditto to what Dave said. My 6:1 head has the same problem. I don't know why Tod has not corrected that. Functionally it's great, and really peps up a stock motor.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Is the opinion the duration is 248 vs 260 due to the .014" lash? It seems logical to me. In any case, is the deviation from 260 durationan issue responsible for the extreme static advance I see at...

Re: installing a front crossmember

I'd like to add the importance of the 6 rivets on the top of the frame. They must be low profile, or you will have a interference issue with the front fenders.

Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

Re: Cam Degree wheel setup for V8 flathead

Exactly, that is why I am trying to avoid mounting directly on the end of the crank. I think ive got it figured out. I'm going to mount to the 4 bolts for the 39 -40 fan. I can turn the crank with...

Re: Cam Degree wheel setup for V8 flathead

Kurt, the only one I could find at Speedway that fit a flathead was the Offenhauser one that had the crank hub part of the wheel. Flathead crank is about 1.310" What did you find?

Cam Degree wheel setup for V8 flathead

I've been shopping for a degree wheel to check my cam, but have not seen anything size wise to fit either the crankshaft, or the '40 fan bolt pattern. Any recommendations?

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Your the winner! The simplest and most clearly articulated for my feeble mind, thanks.

I have not degreed the cam yet. Got a lot going right now and it may be awhile.

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

About advancing the cam. The cam gear is a bolt on and will fit only one way. I would have to pull the cam and gear forward enough to clear the crank gear before I could retard the cam. All the...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Flatjack9, My light has no advance detection ability, so it can only work correctly or not work at all.

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

Bored&Stroked, Yes, it has 25* static advance and with RPM will hit 35* with the vacuum brake full on, bolt fully in. Keep in mind, the distributor thinks it is zero* at TDC, so I'm only getting 10*...

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Thanks Bob. Seems a bit complex. Is there a discussion somewhere that explains the "why" of its construction? It looks like all attempts are made to eliminate any press fitting- ring gear to body,...

Re: Question on Cam Gear Marks - UPDATE

I don't think you could visibly tell through the plug hole whether both valves are open .030" or closed. Especially if they sit low in their seats. JMO
