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?

Re: L-100 cam in a 221

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: 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.
