Camshafts having over .450" valve lift in 1948-69 engines, will need to have front
exhaust lobe-to-circuit breaker drive gear clearance checked.
Camshafts having over .450" valve lift in 1948-57 engines, will need to have front intake lobe-to-case clearance checked.
* To convert cam lift to valve lift, multiply the cam lift figure by the rocker arm ratio: Shovelhead - 1.425; Panhead - 1.5.
a
Opening and closing figures for camshafts with the multiple keyway gear are based on the gear installed in the 0" position.
