What is needed to upgrade a cam? Can i swap the cam and call it good or do I need a new timing set as well?
What Grimbrand said. Chinese made with poor quality control and crap steel = bad products.What is needed to upgrade a cam? Can i swap the cam and call it good or do I need a new timing set as well?
I only agree with that if the mileage was high enough to justify it otherwise it's just a waste of parts and $, plain and simple. This has even more consequence if it's an older performance timing set that wasn't made of modern chinese steel of dubious quality.I've replaced the cam twice in my '69 302 and I replaced the timing set both times since it would be wrong to be "in there" and not renew something as cheap as a timing set.
Geez! Is there no place left on earth to buy good quality parts?There's plenty of testimonials and news articles online about steel products coming out of China that don't prove out to be the alloys or of the quality that were specified and ordered. This has been going on for many years now.
