MODEL A CAM,HARD CHROMED JOURNALS




MODEL A CAMS WITH JOURNAL SIZES LARGER THEN 1.557" ARE BECOMING HARD TO FIND!

THIS PRESENTS A PROBLEM WITH CUSTOMERS BEING ABLE TO SEND IN GOOD CORES FOR REGROUND CAMSHAFTS. USING A CAMSHAFT WITH JOURNALS WORN UNDER 1.557" CAN RESULT IN AN ENGINE KNOCK, ESPECIALLY IN THE CENTER CAM JOURNAL, COMMONLY MISTAKEN FOR MAIN BEARING NOISE.

WE HAVE ADDRESSED THIS SITUATION BY BUILDING UP THE JOURNALS OF THE "A" CAM WITH THE SAME HARD CHROME USED IN AIRCRAFT & DIESEL ENGINE COMPONENTS. WE THEN GRIND THE JOURNALS BACK TO THE ORIGINAL FORD SPECIFICATION OF 1.560" DIAMETER. THIS RESULTS IN A CAMSHAFT THAT WILL PROPERLY FIT INTO THE CAM BORES IN YOUR BLOCK, IF YOUR BLOCK IS NOT EXCESSIVELY WORN. THE HARD CHROME IS EXTREMELY DURABLE & WILL WEAR FOR THOUSANDS OF MILES TO COME.

THESE CAMS ARE SOLD ON AN EXCHANGE ONLY PROGRAM, AS ARE ALL OTHER "A" CAMS, EXCEPT THAT THE CORES FOR THESE CAMS ONLY NEED EXCELLENT GEAR TEETH & REGRINDABLE LOBES! THIS MAKES MOST CUSTOMER CAMSHAFTS USABLE AS CORES.
