You know FB88, I read your reply's and usually they are full of good information. I have also read some of your reply's that are just downright snotty to say the least. This reply was no different, there was no reason whatsoever to come off that way to the guy....yes, a lot of guys ask questions that are easily found on websites and by googling, he could and should have tried to make a stab at finding the info himself, maybe he's not as computer savvy as you. My opinion, and I'm sure you don't give a sh-- about it either is ...you were WAY outta line.

I located a page w/current Erson grinds- http://www.pbm-erson.com/store.php?catId=327

I'll be damned if I can see how a TQ40 cam relates to the numbers I'm seeing, though.

I see elsewhere that the SBC TQ40 (SBC IS what you're talking about?) is 0.470"-ish lift w/1.5 rockers, 220/228 duration @ 0.050" on a 110 LSA.

Thanks for your input.I have really searched a lot and im not very computer savy to say the least but i have spent a lot of time searching online.I keep getting forwarded to other sites that forward me to other sites over and over.I know the old part number but they all seem to list newer part numbers that dont coinside.I'm brand new on this site that I thought was going to be cool people.

The page I linked shows p/n E113321 to be a: "Stroker Power Hydraulic Camshaft" and "Small Base Circle for Stroker Applications".

The page I linked doesn't cross reference numbers like "TQ40", etc. over to the "E113321-type" p/n's. I also noticed that TQ40, etc. can be for a BOP, Cad, Ford, Mopar, and probably American Motors engine.

BTW, the advertised duration is 284/296. So, consider yourself spoonfed- even though you really didn't ask for all the info you got! lol JK- It's all good.

F-Bird was right on in his response. If you can't find it on the net, why not pick up the phone and dial Erson's toll free number. Its too easy, evidently, for people to come on here and say "I've really tried to find the info on my own but I just can't, do it for me". I have no idea if the
OP did or did not, it's just that you he is getting thrown in with ever increasing number of "hotrodders" who just aren't interested in finding out things for themselves and just post questions to get their research done for them. It's bringing the overall quality of the site down and no amount of begging for "political correctness" is going to cure it. I'll put my soap box away now.

I had no luck searching either, there is no mention of the TQ40 on the PBM/Erson web site, and apparently you can't get the catalog PDF unless you are signed up and registered with PBM?!?

I hate the fact that some companies withhold info, make you sign up or have a business account.... just to see if they have what you want.

Federal-Mogul/Sealed Power/Speed-Pro is the one I have the biggest problem with, you can't get any info from them without a business account.

Man i wonder if the guy will even come back, I wouldnt after someone jumped down my throat for asking a question. He obvioulsy had issues finding info and was seeking a little help or I think he found his info but just wanted confirmation. Either way happy hotrodding original poster and dont take these guys personal. Some of them are well mannered. CLASSIC

Alot of old school hotrodders use erson cams. I go to several car shows and asked for engine specs of the old timers and just as sure as dookie stank they are running erson. Let us know how it turns out.
