Here's Comp Cams instructions; they're pretty thorough.
EDIT: I left this out:
From my gathered notes:
Nick McKenney quote: (actually from na svt)
If you are going to go 4V find a 99+ Continental and take the heads complete. Degree the cams to 106-108 intake and leave the exhaust at 110 (the conti intake cams are bigger than the Marks), it will require a serious mod to the secondary gears to do this. Combine with a Mach 1 intake and thats as good as it gets without spending serious cash.
- Ensure there is counterclockwise tension on the cams when checking the lobe centers.
- Degree int his order, left exh, left int, rt exhaust, rt int.
- Do not install the pass side gears/chains until the driver side is compeleted
- Install the followers only after the degreeing is complete
" Ensure there is counterclockwise tension on the cams when checking the lobe centers".
Just want to make sure this means : rotate crank counter clockwise like .150 before max lobe lift then clockwise come up to .050 before max lobe lift then clockwise again to .050 after max lift. What your saying is all actions in the "before and after max cam lobe readings" should all be in the clockwise rotation to load chains properly.
Yes and this requires a third hand.
IMHO do not use anything smaller than an 18" wheel.
That's all the advice I've found that wasn't in the procedure.
