Going to break in my new 282S cam Saturday hopeful if nothing else goes wrong. but that is another story.
Comp recommends lash of 22 but I remember a discussion about seting the lash cold vs hot.
So my question is do you set it at 22 cold to break the motor in. Or do you have to adjsut that since 22 is the hot setting?

.022 cold for break in is OK Jerry.
After you run it in and change out the oil and filter, you can themn warm it up and set them one more time. The lash will change so don't panic.
