re: Small base circle cam
Thanks for the replies,
I am aware that they use flat tappet small base circle cams in stroker SB Chevy a lot to clear the rod bolts.
In this instance I'm told that a 351w block (393) has room to clear with no problem with a regular HYD flat tappet. So I have a 3 choices, running a regular HYD flat tappet or running a small base circle cam with stock HYD roller lifters, dogbones, spider, or regular HYD roller with link bar lifters.
The link bar setup is the most expensive and the best I know. But this is no high RPM motor and I'm wondering if I can run the stock HYD roller and gain the benefits of the the roller cam profile and gain some power and still have some usability/durability.
Is it worth it or should I just run a flat tappet and be done with it if I don't step up to a link bar set up.
Has anyone run a small base circle HYD roller and had good results?
