Re: flathead engine temps?

I still don't get the hi oil pressure. Crank and bearings won't last long.

The 00jr cam will have only 375/380 lift. The 400 jr has aprox 390 ;ift, and varies abit depending who grinds them. The one I used in the stock car cam from Isky I hope.

The 77B would be a nice cam for a street blower system.

Re: Engine Problem

Try an extra gasket. not the best idea, but should clear the valves. You'd have to mill the heads quite abit for the valves to hit the plugs, sounds like an aftermarket cam.

Re: Finally some Cam Degree Numbers - Now what?

I've never given mush thought to the 77B cam as it quite mild and doesn't offer much in performance. With todays prices I would think that spending 500$ bucks on a cam Assy, you might consider the...

Re: L-100 cam in a 221

The L 100 need compression and cubs to build the torque lost to a long cam. Thus you have a streetable cay. The 276 does this.

Re: L-100 cam in a 221

I've probably built more engines than anyone else with the L-100, it was the goto cam. However they didn't run well in a small engine especially in a heavy vehicle . But they do sound good. Why not...

Re: flathead cam

I had a Howard F 11 for a flat shaft, and I think that's where I got the idea. Strange how you remember things like that.

Re: Wilwood front disc kit 140-14190

The cheapest way to go is with the speedway kit, unfortunately ths system is heaver than the stock brake drum and will cause handling problems. However for a passenger car/truck, work very well.
