getting rid of casting flash and blending everything in.

As for tools you will need a 1/4 grinder, (if electric) a router speed control,
a 1/4 shank tar drop shaped 3/8" bur with a 4" long shank, 60 grit cartridge
rolls and a 4" long mandrel. Don't forget safety equipment, goggles, dust
mask and ear plugs.

I too believe the XE274H cam is too small for a 351 at 6000 RPM, what’s the
duration @ 0.050"?
Thanks for the advice, man. @ .050" duration is split 230*/236* with .519"/.523" of valve-lift.
