9 key way timing set

Is it possible to gain a little more performance when replacing a single key way timing set and using a 9 key way timing set, can u play with the timing of the cam ?, what do i do ???

Re: 9 key way timing set

Only if your cam isn't in the 'correct' spot now.
By advancing the cam you gain bottom end power, by retarding it you gain top end.
There is always a 'sweet spot' though which produces the best compromise.

It's not a small job to do on a Cleveland though.

Rick.

Rick is right... I have found a wee bit of advance, 2-4 degrees is about as much as I would want to do.
I guess you could advance or retard it more to suit your application.
