    Photoshop. The original photo it was 'shopped'
    from showed the Ford 'guys in suits' looking
    at a standard 2-4bbl Cammer V8.

    I just got a 'cammer'! I'm gathering stuff for a modified build and this is the engine for it.
    I do have a very good friend that has an original cammer, never been in a car. I think it is the dragrace version as it has 2 X 4 and magnesium rocker boxes. I witnessed the first time ever starting of that engine last spring, i can tell you that it is a wicked piece of work. It is for sale.
    I like my cammer, came from an XKE. I am gathering up a mess of solex sidedrafts for it. It really is one well made engine.

    Here's some shots from 'back in day' of Canadian,
    Scott Wison and the famous "Time Machine' SOHC
    fuel dragster. Wilson had sponsorship from Ford
    of Canada and he also collaborated with fellow
    fuel racer and SOHC guru, Pete Robinson. By
    the way, the 'Time Machine' dragster still exists.
    Wilson found the car several years ago, bought
    it back and has restored it , albeit with Chrysler
    Hemi power now. For the full history and story
    of the 'Time Machine' digger, there's a great
    article by Scott Wilson himself on the 'Nitro
    Geezers' site
    ( http://www.nitrogeezers.com/Scott Wilson Story 2.htm )

    I tell 'ya what......I'm a Chevrolet guy born-and-bred, but the Ford 427 SOHC is most likely the ultimate Musclecar engine of the '60's. It makes an L-88 look boring. It was obviously Ford's quick answer to the Hemi and probably surpassed it as far as horsepower potential. If money were no object for me, I'd like to have the combination of the the ultimate engine, the Ford 427 SOHC, in the ultimate car, a '65-66 AC Shelby Cobra. Can you even imagine what such a beast of a car would be capable of? That would be a car where you walk out to your garage and tell yourself: "That's it.......what could possibly be neater than that?!" Nothing.

    Yeah, I know. I realized that, even as I was typing
    it. But I couldn't figure out how else to describe it.
    I suppose..."a standard 2-4bbl Cammer V8",
    as opposed to a "photoshopped 3-4bbl Cammer
    V12
    "! LOL:D

  16. so i see the normal cam sprocket is used to help drive the two cams but what supports the sprocket is it a blank cam or similar or some kind of bolt on bearing?

    They used a short 'stub shaft; in place of the
    normal camshaft down in the center of the
    "vee" The stub shaft was driven off the
    crank via a conventional 'short' timing chain.
    In turn, the stub shaft drove the distributor
    and the oil pump as well the two overhead
    cams, via an additional sprocket bolted on
    the front of it and a 6ft long-plus secondary
    timing chain.

    At a car show last weekend in Burlingame CA, there was a 57 Bird with a cammer init. The guy who brought the car was the one who put in the motor, I think in the 70s. It sat a little high in the engine bay to clear the pan. He apparently puts a fair about of street miles onit. It had the patina of a lot of happy miles.

    Very nice.... too bad it's not a real 'cammer block. They're really tough to find, but that one will cut it. Enjoy. :)
