cam and cam gear are in

installed cam and adjustable cam gear today, it would have taken about 2 hours but one of the seals for the lifters was gone, so I had to wait a couple hours for someone with a car to drive me to ford. They sold only the whole lifter and that was $46 so I went to Bursons and got the whole thing for $18.50.

My car now drives fine but stopping is a problem as it stalls when I stop in drive, however neutral is ok, I am getting it dyno'd tomorrow, will the tune fix this.

IT FEELS GREAT TO DO SOMETHING ON MY CAR AND NOT HAVE ANY BOLTS LEFT OVER!!!

Re: cam and cam gear are in

I don't really wanna rev the car out too much till it "settles in" but when it was in neutral I revved it a bit and once it hit 2 grand it shot straight up to 3 grand pretty quickly.

Re: cam and cam gear are in

Useless,
I was going to pay someone to do it but a lot of you suggested to do it myself, so I thought I might, then I read your thread and didn't want to, I asked a mates dad if he would look over my work and he did so I put it in myself, I am glad I did.

Man I had a hard time and ended up putting the standard setup in.BUT!!!!I t will be very satisfying when I finish it properly now that I know what is involved. ,,I think this is half the fun..As you may have read the dev 4 would have been in the car today had it not been for my haste and not check the leads...Thats all it was ...But now Ido know that its not as hard as ot seems once youve done it twice..So good luck with your cam and idle and I hope you kick ass

Re: cam and cam gear are in

Useless,
The "ass kicking" is on hold for a while, I took the car out for a bit of a thrashing and once it hits 45000 rpm the lifters tick like hell, so I won't get it dyno'd just yet. I guess the washers I put in there aren't good enough. I now have to wait for Ford to order me in some shims, and I am not looking forward to taking the rockers off again as one of the bolts on there were burred from before I even touched it, so I just hope I can take it off and put it back on without too much trouble.
