I don't agree that the vernier cam gears are needed to degree the cams, Ray. We are only trying to time the cams to the crank within one belt notch. Heck, the stock engines don't have vernier gears, r...

Personally, I would degree the cams. To do so, you need the factory camshaft centerlines. I would contact someone like YoshiFab or Delta Cams, as they would know the factory numbers. After you set t...

I bought a used 1.5 cam and installed it in a brand new $2000 Big valve/ported head... Unknown to me, the cam was bent and threw a follower, which cracked the head from the HLA bore to the water-jacke...
