What I don't get is how both our countries move backwards at the same time. Same bullshit here. I'm building a garage and two lads are 20 years old, good workers but no idea how to read a tape measure and it's their job, lol. "Three ticks past 3 feet". I said what, big ticks or little ticks FFS. So I show him how to read a tape and realize half way through that he doesn't know what a fraction is. So I learned how to read ticks! We call that accommodating here.
48 & 1/4 & 2 of them little marks......??

4 weeks, assuming the cam core isn't back-ordered.
Whats with cam cores these days? Seems like everybody is out more often than not.

It sucks. There's cam cores I ordered last year, that I haven't received yet.
That's why we started making our own line of Tool Steel cam cores. With tool steel, you don't need to stock as many part#'s. For each part#, you can grind a much wider variety of cam profiles, and lobe centers, because they're thru-hardened, so you don't have to worry about grinding through the heat treat.

Edelbrock
I can remember when they came out with new B and RB manifolds
They showed dyno curves for both motors
but they only had one motor
the other was interpolated
famous guys writing magazine articles
never thought much about Edelbrock since then
or their cam choices
Do wish they had come out with a head/piston/ cam combination
We did some starting in 68 with the open chamber heads
Started by welding up the heads, then the quench dome pistons
Used a 192 @.050 .904 lifter special by Bill Jenks at Potvin
we reduced the EGT of Propane/ Natural gas 440 bus engines by 800 degrees.
(Mike's motorhome profile is way ahead of the hand filed "Moon Cam"
Mike - made some changes to Krooser's build- will send you an e-mail
need to get the core on the way
