Words of wisdom here.^^^^^^

I originated this wiki article, which has since been tweaked by other board members to its present form. I believe it to be the definitive tutorial for using a flat tappet camshaft......

If using a mechanical or hydraulic roller cam, clean the preservative oil off the cam and lifters, oil them with engine oil, install 'em and run 'em. No special procedures are necessary.
