Comp Cam adjustable cam gears or just file the stock gears?
I'm about to start degreeing the Hitech Stage 2 cams that I'm installing into a fresh rebuild. I started to order the Comp Cams adjustable gears but after reading numerous threads about filing down the keyway, I opted to save the money and go that way. Now, as I'm about to start the process (if the cams will hurry up and get here) I'm second guessing that decision. Which is going to be the safest and most durable? What happens if the little screws come loose on the Comp Cams setup? They seem a little cheesy, but if I grind off the keyway and the cam bolt backs off, that would be very bad. I've had to mill both heads and deck the block, loosing about .025 on both sides, so not degreeing isn't an option.
I just don't wanna have to worry about this later. I want to button it up and not look at it for another 100,000+ miles...any advice?
Also, what's the technique for holding the cams while torquing the cam bolts without turning the gears if you grind off the keyways????
