    Huskinhano I've heard some not so great things about Howards cams build quality??


    I'm building a beer money 302 for the 64 - the plan is stock bottom end, new rings, home hone, GT40 heads, stock bolt down rockers and stock pushrods (as long as geometry looks good) E303 cam with proper springs / retainers, need to pull the heads apart to see if a valve job or any guide work is required. So far the bores and pistons measured out pretty good, cross hatch is still visible in the bores and there's very little ridge at the top of the bores. There is some taper, most bores measured 4.001" at the bottom and 4.005 near the ridge, pistons all came in at 3.997+ at the base of the skirts.

    I'll look around for a B cam Beags....

    yeah, I saw them at 200 new. They used to go for 50-75 on the local boards, which is what I call cheap! I guess they all got melted down, it's certainly had it's day in the sun... I have a solid flat tappet I bought from a Crower Garage Sale for 20 bucks. I'll use it. Let's call it "lumpy".

    and I'm dead serious. If anyone has a B303 laying around for cheap, I would put it in the white car. If you know somebody with a B303 (All hail Beecam!), please get me in touch with them. I might get so churned up about a BEECAM!! I finish the black car and pull the white one in ASAP.
    I forgot the black car is mostly together, I don't blame you I would not open it up either. Now lets see if we can find you cam!

    http://forums.corral.net/forums/wind...llers-etc.html asking 150 plus shipping and paypal, wow unless they really get better with mileage like they say i would get a new one off ebay for 195 to my door. If I saw one for 100 shipped would pull the trigger.

    I was having an awful lot of trouble posting a youtube clip. It kept saying it wasn't a valid URL. Anyway, I'm thinking of this cam from Howards. They make it in both 110 or 112 LCA. I was thinking the 112 LCA would be better for me, I like my tall gears. Howards agreed with my choice other then they recommended the 110 LCA. They said it would have a little more low end but slightly rougher idle. They did ask if I had power brakes. I don't.I don't know why they call it a retro fit cam. It's not a reduuced base circle cam. They do offer it in a reduced base circle version and it's listed as such. The springs I installed for the E cam are good for .540"
