Re: Lift Off! My 1972 Resto-Mod Begins

camshaft specs for your build

MaineVette...
I see the listed specs for your camshaft in your project updates, but do you have a pic of the cam card you can post? Want to compare it to ideas I have. If not, do you know the Intake Valve Closing Point ABDC in deg?

thanks :cheers:

Re: Lift Off! My 1972 Resto-Mod Begins

Finished some more body disassembly the last couple days in the nose... headlights, front bumper and brackets, etc. The maze of vac hoses served as more motivation to convert the system to electric along with the wipers. http://i760.photobucket.com/albums/xx250/mndshp/before%20disassembly_zpsfyxfr3m...

The assembly is so sensitive to paint, alignment and fit that it doesn't take much to bind up the system. I just n...
