I got mine a few weeks ago, I'm so excited... real quality piece.
I bought it to my machine shop they were drolling over it.

Scott, It's so notice to get a product with such quality machine
work, and attention to detail, excellent instructions also.

Question

I'm going to be using a Milodon gear drive, thus I have no use for the cam gear/bearing plate deal.

How much just for the cam retainer plate with the roller bearing setup?

Also, for replacement purposes, what are the part #'s for replacement bearings?

Thanks.

how many are out there in use now?

surely they'll be great in racing applications, but i'm wondering about long term street usage.

Hi All! I am coming up on the busy time of the year, for me anyway. I dont mean to sound like a salesman, but might I suggest that, If you might need a roller setup, it might be good to place the order now. I always would rather you be waiting on someone other that me when putting together your engine for next season.

thanks for all the good responses...

In less than 2 months we will have Torrington bearings for our chains as an option. We have new chains that are made in the USA and come with a REMOVABLE bronze washer. With a Torrington replacement option! The Chains are available now with the Bronze bushing. The Torrington is very close to being done. I will have the chains on my site by next weekend! They also come in .005 and .010. Best of all NO special cam plate needed!!


Be Cool,
Ace

So what does the bronze washer do? Stop cam plate wear on deceleration? I have seen the bronze washer on timing sets before and they do nothing for cam plate wear . The washer is on the wrong side (deceleration). Sooo replacing the bronze washer with a torrington bearing still does nothing at all for the acceleration side of the cam plate.

I use a Pete Jackson gear drive on both of my short blocks. I sent Scott both cam gears to be machined for the clearance necessary for his setup. Excellent work and products. Can't confirm any gains but I wouldn' use anything else.

Yep, I put a few hundred street miles on mine, and just put it all into a different short block. Still looks like new.

will do any good. At wide open throttle the cam wants to
push out the front of the engine. On any cam plate...If you
look at which side of the plate is worn...its the block
side....which means the cam is pushing out wards.
As far as dyno results on the bronze bushing....Have you
seen the results posted somewhere? I can give you a copy of
my results if you like!



Thanks for the interest...
