Re: retarding the cam from 4 degrees to straight up

I always shoot for having that tight but sometimes it just doesnt work out that way. There is no doubt that the O.E's don't see it as something worthwhile to chase. It would take a crazy amount of testing to qualify or disqualify it if you think about it. You would need to test piston to head cleara...

How long do you think they have been testing your lobes ? ... The Rat bastards ..... Lol We all study each other's lobe designs. I have data of Ed Winfield lobe designs that were made before I was born. Not to mention current designs from all across the industry. Harold Brookshire would come by my ...

Re: Do all these eBay Rockers Suck

Erics posts lean towards helping the novice engine builder. You and I may know that most things need some work. "Bolt on performance " is a myth. I didn't see the need to insult the man on a public forum. I can see where your coming from. In my opinion though, what has run off a lot of the more tal...

Re: GM Hydraulic Roller Lifter Travel Limit Spacer

How many are you looking for? Tom Id be looking for 16. The S&S lifter limiters 33-5338 measure .115" as you already know. I assumed they were still available, now that ive looked I see everyone is showing out of stock on them. So those take about half the travel out of one of these lifters anyway....

I have used the ones S&S sells for Harleys in these lifters before, but they arent as thick as what im wanting. Looking to take most of the .200ish travel out. Please don't recommend an afterm...

Re: Rocker Ratio vs Lobe in a limited lift engine.....

I've seen this argument many times over the years. In the OP's case, assuming lobe selection was good enough to go either route. I'd go with more lobe and less ratio, at that lift rule.....especially if its flat tappet which im assuming is the case.

Re: Cambearing install

You install the back one from the front, then the front one from the back....using the cone. If we're on the same page here, or talking about the same tool?
