For sure i will run some miles on it before cranking it

thanks,

lluciano77 As long as the lifters aren't worn out, you can reuse old roller lifters on a new cam too.

357f-150 No need to break in the roller camshaft but being a new engine, some people like to take certain steps to ensure the rings seat properly, depends on what your using, your call on that one. Good luck

lluciano77 You don't need any break in with a roller cam. Just make sure everything is safe and drive it.

BOBCRMAN@aol.com As long as everything is well lubed on startup. There is no actual break in on a roller cam.

SkyMan9600 I think you need to run it "nicely" for a little while before romping on it with a new roller cam, but I don't know... I would like to know the answer to this also guys...
