What is the acceptable tolerance between lobes for a camshaft?
Yeah, that's it.think cam card to actuall and lobe to lobe.
Yeah, that's it.
Would 2* be considered close enough for OTS, mass production?
What about for a custom cam?
I really screwed up checking a cam the other day, which lead to this question. A combination of errors like overconfidence, lack of experience, interruptions, and checking at the valve retainer, lead me to believe some weird readings. The next day I redid it at the pushrod (heads on engine) being as precise and cautious as possible. The new readings are all within 2* between the card, #1, and #6.
