    very good info - but, would leave the average guy in the dust - just look online, pick cam/lifter set and go

    Agreed. Bottom line is to buy a set from the same manufacturer. Mix 'n match might be catastrophic.

    That's good info, and undoubtedly is part of the whole cam failure issue all blamed on the oil

  6. Just great, now I have one more thing to worry about, when I insert the cam that I bought years ago from an auction.

    Good information. Cool how Nailheads were designed with neutral cam thrust.

    Great article, written back in 2009! How much worse have things gotten since then?
