Re: L-100 cam in a 221

For clearance, I run .002 on street engines and .003 on race engines.

I use 1.795 as a minimum as long as it is round.

Re: flathead cam

We turn them 7200. We use titanium valves and lightweight lifters.
We know for sure they will turn over 8K with no valve float.
One of our engines had the dog clutch coupling break coming off of...

Re: L-100 cam in a 221

Just for the book, I won't put a race grind on an after market cast core.
The heat treat is really bad. (inconsistent)

Re: flathead cam

I have never heard of that but it probably could be done with some creative welding and machining.

All of the ones I heard of had Norden cranks. Norden made all kinds of neat race car stuff.

Re: flathead cam

If it is what it is stamped, it is a #4 Meyer Drake 270 Offy grind for short tracks.
The "180" could be it was for an engine with a single plane crank.
It was originally designed by Ed Winfield in...

Re: Sidemounts - 1 or 2 ?

One, two, none, it all depends on what YOU want, not uncle Joe or the guy standing alongside you.

Re: Roto-Faze ignition Q....

Roger on the cams.
Remember, any real fast cam is going have to be on a billet and need radius lifters.

Just remove the master spline land.
The easiest way is a die grinder and a 1/4 inch carbide burr.
