Hi guys,for those of you that read my post on dist gears,here's an update.

Have found that the 1st gear that got ate
also damaged the cam gear.
My ??? to everyone is this,I've been given
a Doug herbert billet roller cam.Specs are:
603-604 lift,280-277 advertised,@.50 244-242
with 110 lobe seperation.This is a used cam.

What is everyones opinion of this cam,
Any recomendations.Not sure of current cam.
Card was lost and no one remembers what it is. It's at least a 6?? something lift.

It will require different springs and retainers, different pushrods, and a different gear on the distributor.
The profile seems ok for a mild race application. Low duration numbers should make decent low end power.
Best part is, it wasnt paid for.

Hey Kid,I was just thinking about you and
look who answers 1st.

1st ?? ,why would I need to change springs,push rods and retainers.We do know
that the cam is at least a 600something lift that is in the engine now.This engine is a full roller,would this make a differance in your opinion for what is needed and how much more cam could I go with and still drive it on the street some.?

Thanks and hurry up (if you know what I mean)

I didnt realize you already had a roller in this motor. So, ignore everything I said.
As for how much more cam, that depends on how tolerant you are with a finicky motor. You could probably go with a little more duration if you have enuff convertor for it.
