Re: L-100 cam in a 221

For clearance, I run .002 on street engines and .003 on race engines.

Re: flathead cam

We turn them 7200. We use titanium valves and lightweight lifters.

Re: flathead cam

I have never heard of that but it probably could be done with some creative welding and machining.

All of the ones I heard of had Norden cranks. Norden made all kinds of neat race car stuff.

Remember, any real fast cam is going have to be on a billet and need radius lifters.
