429 SCJ cam

Hello,

I just bought a 1970 429 SCJ crane cam. I have a stock 429 thunder jet engine. Is there any reason why I cant pull the old cam and lifters and replace them with the new cam and solid lifters?

Thanks,

Pete

cool Re: 429 SCJ cam

Solid lifter valve trains require a valve lash adjustment, so you will need adjustable valve train in order to run that cam in the Thunderjet engine.

Ok thanks, and is there any reason why putting in this new cam would not be a good idea?

Thanks,
Pete
