Re: New Roller Cams

You should only use oil - not moly lube

Re: New Roller Cams

I have heard a few different theories on this, and I did just use oil, but christ almighty, it really goes against all that I know....ever seen how long oil sits on a vertical surface???????

Re: New Roller Cams

Being roller cams/ lifters they roll over cam.There is also no break in period with rolller cams....Hence second hand roller cams are like a new one....They don't wear like a flatt tappet... Mechanicle [solid] cams don't rquire the same adjustement either after initial set up....

Re: New Roller Cams

Yes, I know al this, it just makes you cringe when you think about the cam sitting in the block for a few weeks till you fire the engine, and nothing but the residual oil sitting there...
