Question Cam And Lifter Alignment


Hello ,
I'am Building A 460 For My 65 F100.the Lifters Don't Align With The Cam They hang over
My Understanding That Lifters are Not Directly Over The Lobe On The Cam . What Is Acceptable? Does Anyone Have Any Thoughts?

The cam lobe is not supposed to be dead-center beneath the lifters. Rather, is is intentinally offset to one side; this promotes rotation of the lifter. If the cam lobe were dead center beneath the lifter, the lifter would not rotate and would be chewed up as a result.

Re: Cam And Lifter Alignment

Thanks Paul. Was Tinkering This Afternoon And Set All Lifters In The Bores, And They All Set The Same, Even With One Side Of The Lobe.
I'am Just Happy That I Don't Have A Problem Did'nt Think So But Would Rather Be Safe Than Sorry.
Thanks Again.
