Going to redegree using an actual lifter.
Are all the lobes the same? Did you check any of the other lobes. Its one thing to be ground outside of spec its another to be off from lobe to lobe. One will still make power the other will not.

Is it a big company? If so let us know. None of them are dead on the cam card. One look at the way they are made its easy to see why. Looks very accurate but really it seems pretty easy for it to get screwed up. When cutting hard metals things just dont always go to plan. Actully it never does go well its always a fight to get it down to the .0001 range and not go over. So the cams are sometimes left a little large. I would be suprised if you saidit was dead on and want to buy all my cams from that guy. But the biggest machines make the closest grinds to the specs.
