here's the rules for cams. new cam, new followers!!!I think its used but i'm not 100% sure. Would it be acceptable to take some 1500 grit sand paper and break the glaze off of the sliders inorder for the cam to wear into the slightly rough surface?
from what i get outta this is you need new followers, u can get them special order from auto parts stores or try any local engine builder or internet search for cam followers 2.2/2.5 no rollers what year is ur head?Well then this presents a problem, what am i supposed to do if this cam is used? I only have one set of sliders and they were in the car.
I think this is for sliders only since AFAIK the rollers neither wear themselves nor wear the camhere's the rules for cams. new cam, new followers!!!
used cam same followers in same postion.
used cam new followers.
NEVER put used followers on a new cam!!!
never mix used followers.
I have new oem factory followers that have the sintered pads for an 85 s/c i heard that all 86 and 87 motors come stock with themTo try to use the cam as long as possible you should buy the new sintered iron followers.That is almost as good as using new followers on a new cam.stock followers will go very shortly and take the cam out with them.
no no no, what i would do is take this purple cam you got and find the specs. it can be done pretty ez using a dial indicator and a degree wheel go to ISKY Racing Cams - Do It Right. Race with the Legend. Camshafts, Connecting Rods, Valve Springs, Lifters they had a pretty good explanation for this. you might just have a way better profile. i used a used cam with new followers thats why i have another set cuz i have another hot used mp perf cam .550" liftSo would i be better off with a roller TBI cam??? I know where i can pick one of those up fairly cheap, and would i then need an offset cam key?
