    www.hothemiheads.com has a hemi classifieds section. I posted up looking for a tall deck cam with many responses and wildly varying prices. I finally found a low deck cam on ebay that I am going to modify to the later snout to use in my 341.

    There was just sort of an article about this in the November "Hot Rod" (page 152). Answer was there is no one making new cores I know you asked for NOS). Isky cams will regrind old ones in good condition in many different grinds.The article notes that the '52-'55 276/291's and the '56-'57 330/341/345's use different cam cores and they are all different from the Dodge and Chryslers. Maybe you know this, I just thoguht it timely.

    The "standard answer" is that you can't switch low & high deck cams. Has to do with lifter bore angle/timing. Engine won't run right.
