Anyone know where I can get a Buick straight camshaft reground or a new one?
Thanks - Jerry
Berry Cams. 1-320-395-2377 They have done two for me, both very powerfull cams, and very resonable.
You could also try American Custom Cam, in Covina, CA.
Or Dema Elgin who has a web site. But he is in Santa Rosa Ca. and you may not wish to ship that far.
Oregon cam Grinders. Outstanding work,,,503-252-5505
Thanks for the info.
Thats a good point about the shipping. I sent a cam out a few years ago and had it ground. On its trip home it was kicked, dropped, and beat up so much it had a TIR of .030" when it finally reached my house! luckly the grinder shop had put insurance on the package.
If you ship it, make a wooden crate w/ supports inside.
Egge machine did mine.
As to shipping I put it in a piece of PVC pipe wrapped in pipe insulation.
Glued a cap to pne end and a thread in plug to the other.
No issues with shipping and they just sent it back the same way using my packaging.
I like that PVC idea. Thank you.
Delta Cams in Tacoma,WA. can re-grind just about any camshaft.
Same situation - plan to hop up a 50 straght 8 - any recommendations out there on cam specs (duration, lift etc) for the regrind or a package of mods that would work together for some increased streetable performance (compression, cam, intake etc)? Thanks
Try Effingham regrind in Effingham Illinois
Another vote for Egge and the PVC pipe shipping idea is great!
Another vote for Delta Cams in Tacoma Wa.
I use PVC pipe for all kinds of things, but never thought of the 'Cam Shipping Tube' idea.
GREAT idea, this will become the norm for cam shipping!
