Hot Cam installation Question

Recommended Posts

Acutely I have two questions.

First: I didn't pick up any of the high pressure Assembly lube that they recommend on the installation sheet (darn). I do have Luberplate that I use for automotive cam installations, will that work? The parts store is open for a while today so could still pick something up if needed.

Second: On new Cam installations "E" exhaust and Hot Cam intake should I run the adjustment on the loose side or tight side?

Here are my initial measurements:

Exhaust: Right .20mm

Left .23mm

Intake: Right .10mm

Left .15mm

Now here is what I am planning on doing:

Exhaust: Right .25mm

Left .23mm

Intake: Right .15mm

Left .15mm

How's that sound?

Sounds like a plan. :cry:

Actually you may even be able to go looser on some if some of the shims are factory half shims.....

All my shims are full shims:

Exhaust: R 310 L 310 Intake: R 285 L 285

What do you think about using Luberplate to install the Cams?

FWIW, Hot Cams recommends their intakes at .15 and their exhaust at .20. I like the .15 but personally set up the exhaust closer to .25 if possible.

Well here's what I ended up with: Exhaust R .28 L .25 Intake R .15 L .15

And now that I have it back together it's snowing.

How many miles should I put on it before changing the oil? How about readjusting the valves?

Tim with new Scotts damper, Hot cam intake and E-Exhaust. :cry:
