we don't regrind camshafts
When you look through our lists of camshafts you will notice that
we do not list either exchange or reground cams. There are 3 reasons
1. When you regrind a standard cam in order to increase the
duration of lift, you must remove material from the base of the cam.
This would be OK if the new cam profile you wish to grind is only
very mild. But if your going to the trouble of up rating your engine
by fitting new cams & the effort that involves, surely a profile that
is significantly better than the original is worth the extra money.
2. The base circle of the cam gets smaller & is reduced by
more than 0.04" (or 1mm) the hydraulic valve in the cam follower cannot
extend any further. It will then either stop & the follower will lose
contact with the base of the cam, or it will jack up so far it will
fall to bits.
3. The most important reason is because the fault could take
a long time to show up, when it does its too late and as the base
of the cam gets smaller, the cam follower rises up its bore to stay
in contact with it. The problem you get is because the follow it so
much higher out of its bore it has a tendency to rock backwards &
forwards with cam motion, this slowly wears its bore. Eventually it
can become so worn that it gets stuck at an angle & when the cam next
comes round it makes quite a mess.
All SBD camshafts have been designed in conjunction with Kent Cams
and extensively tested on the dynamometer. Because of the costs involved
in developing and testing, we charge a premium price for all our own
cam profiles. Similar work can be carried out for our customers, please
contact us with your requirements for a complete estimate. If however,
you wish to purchase Kent Cam profiles from their normal range of
cams standard listings, these will be available at normal Kent Cams
Exhaust cams shown are shortened for Distributor less use if you intend
on using a Distributor please remove the 'S' from the end of part number
gains can only be achieved provided your engine has the components to
complement it. E.g. exhaust manifold & system, induction system &
cylinder head porting where required. If you look at our upgrade kits
they will give you more help.
