The camshaft is the key to making the power come up when it needs to, and Dick is carefully researching his needs to determine final cam dimensions. "The cam will be a solid flat-tappet design, with lots of lift and wide lobe separation. It will be from COMP, along with my lifters, pushrods, rockers, springs (125-pounds of seat pressure), retainers, and locks. I've tried many different camshafts, and the parts I get from COMP always measure out right and work wonderfully. I'm at a slight advantage, since they are located in Memphis, and I can go over there and work with them face-to-face. They're great people, and customer service is a big priority. They've helped me out plenty!"
