Tickford 220kw cam specs?



Does anyone have the Tickford 220kw cam specs, I want to compare cam grinds from Wade, I am going to get a standard roller cam reground to either 992A specs or Tickford 220Kw to suit standard roller lifters with a smaller base circle in a 69 302W not a 5.0L roller block.

I am going to be using turbos with this cam.


I would have sworn I posted a post similar to this today in this section, but I mustnít have as it isnít here now?


I want a EBII Ghia wagon or EF/EL 351W twin headlights, twin exhaust, gas injection and TWIN TURBO'S!

Re: Tickford 220kw cam specs?

He needs a re-ground for it has to be a smaller bass circle cam due to shorter lifter bores..
Remember he's using the old non roller block...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

comp cams make cams to suit anything !
i bet most major cam manufacturers do the same thing
never put a reground cam in a high reving hp engine
it will be a hand grenade !

Already had a few replies from Wade with prices, as you can see these profiles are not for high RPM nor will I be needing to pull high rpm because I will be using turbos.

For a trade price on a Wade reground roller to suit smaller base circle.

Quote:
The trade price to grind your cam to the 992A is $137.00 + GST with freight payable both ways at your end. The only other thing that we would need to point out is that there are occasions when the cam needs re-heattreating. This almost doubles the price. We have to send the cam to Queensland for induction hardening. This is not always required.

Re: Tickford 220kw cam specs?

347 yes you are right but this is the only way a roller can be run in the old flat tappet motor.. Besides with a roller they are relativly lobe friendly, though I'd use the steel camshaft...
In U.S this is done on alot of engines, esp street..

it is not the only way
ring comp cams or crane cams in the u.s and they will tell you what you need !
reground cams are bad, wrong and costly
