Re: CAM Recommendation Big Block 396/325 hp
Couldn't I clean this out by dropping oil pan, empty and cleaning it out, refill with deisel, remount pan with a a few bolts, then turn the oil pump with a drill. Do this a few times, why would it not clean out engine. The oil goes from sump to pump to filter to passages right? and spray top end with diesel from a pump up sprayer and brush. Maybe I'm missing something but I can't see how this would be any worse than bringing it to a car wash and cleaning it.
Also, I called Lunati today about a CAM. I did not talk to HDHarrold. They recommended a 00024 Bracket Master II. This is a .544 lift cam, advertised duration of 292/292, 1.7 ratio and lobe separation of 109. This is definitely different than the GM 350 cam but if it will get good idle, I'm not sure I care. I am running factory manifolds. My heads have a mild pocket port, cylinders are .031 over, stock valves, compcam springs, 3:31 rear gears, turbo400 with 2800 stall and quadrajet carb.
