I had always thought that when you adjust a solid cam if it said 25 hot and you did it cold with iron head and block you would adjust them to about 28 or 29 cold. Now I have been doing that for 30 years. Since joining this forum I read and am doing the opposite. I have aluminum heads and my lash is 18 and 20 hot so I am setting them any 12 and 14 cold because that's what you guys have been telling me. I was just reading comp cams voodoo cams and there was a section about adjusting solid cams and it says for initial start up use hot setting as cold for break in and due to thermal expansion the lash will tighten up and need to be readjusted. What gives who's right

Sounds like you got your work cut out for you. I got a new MSD 6al and MSD dizzy to put in but I'm going to wait till after I go to the FE Reunion to put it in. Car runs to good now to play around. Also think I see a little water leaking from water pump to block gasket, ya know my fault when I put it together the gaskets were so thin I knew I should have got a different set.  So my stuff is easy

Hey guys bought a 8594 MSD distributor  and in the middle of buying MSD 6AL question is I have a pert ronin flamethrower HC coil is it compatible with the MSD box, I looked at the specs and they seem to be the same or better than the MSD coil but IM no expert

I had 427 with 428 crank 20 over making it a 454 . Cylinder heads were c3ae-j, I know they are stock heads but I don't know if it was just the right combination or what but boy it honked 11.49@117 and change. Compression was stock 11.6 and the heads and block were shaved 6 thousands a piece don't know exactly what that comes to I tell people 11.8 to 1, cam was lunatis  smallest race cam in catalogue 290 298. 593 598  108 lobe.   Rpm band  3800-7200  I shifted at 6700 didn't make any power above that.  Would have liked to put the survivals on that motor to see the difference. I am also running stock low riser 2x4 intake with twin 600 never had a problem yet great throttle response no hesitations

Out of all your choices I would wait for Barry or Blair I happen to have survivals and although my car is away for the winter and only have about 400 miles on new motor, I think the heads are doing there job. I went down on compression by a point and went about two sizes smaller on cam and I got on it one time before I put it away and it feels good so I am imagining that it's the extra HP from the heads

Hey Barry hows it goin been listening alittle and it sounds like your still busy well I have about 250 miles on my motor and its pretty much broken in. Every thing seems to be ok no oil burning using brad penn 10/40. as you know couldnt  send the rest of the motor to ya to be dynod so I always look for the same combo to get a horsepower guestimate
485 10.75 comp
280-288  621-624 112 lobe center ( YOUR CAMSHAFT AND YOUR SHORTBLOCK)
survival heads out of box
lowriser duel quad twin 600
You have so many motors built if you come across one like this post it up thanks I know the one with the 950 three barrell but it is a bigger cam
maybe one or two nice weekends left then will be putting car to bed for the winter thanks for the work
on the shortblock everything seems good
