    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.

    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.
     
  8. 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.

    Delta Cams in Tacoma,WA. can re-grind just about any camshaft.
     
  12. 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

    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!
