I can get one at a really good deal. Guy pulled it out of his crate engine, brand new. He wants $50 for it. Not bad for a roller cam. Thing is, all I have is a 400 small block or a 350 I can put it in? But I don't know if it's a retro-fit style camshaft. :confused:

'Fraid not cutter.

Look on the snout of the ZZ4 cam. It should have a machined step on it. This is the area the factory cam retention plate mates to. The cam retention plate is bolted to the front of the block.

Gen 1 small blocks have no provisions for the later model cams' retention plate. Have to go with a retro roller cam and run a button.

You can run it if you use the late model timing chain and add cam button, but the problem is that the retro lifters are going to break the bank.
