trick flow stage 3 cam

does anyone know if there are any special recommendations for a trick flow stage 3 cam for a ford, such as lashing or degreeing info, I do not have a cam card on this particular cam and haven't been able to locate one either.
it is a hyd. roller so it should be lash at "0" but I have seen hyd rollers with lash specs. if anyone has info on this cam any help would be great. thanks

Hydraulic roller tappet camshafts require the same initial adjustment that hydraulic flat tappet cams require. See this tutorial for instructions of how to do a Chevy......or any other motor that has an adjustable valvetrain.....

Anytime you install a new cam w/higher lift and/or greater duration than the cam it's replacing, you should check a few things, like being sure the valve springs are up to the task (spring rate and coil bind).

That's a radical cam, the dual springs they recommend:
Part number TFS-16315-16, 1.460 in. diameter, 438 lbs. per in., 1.100 in. coil bind height.

More help on what to check:
Valve train points to check
Valve train geometry
Valve spring installed height

More info on adjusting your valves:
Adjusting hydraulic lifters

Don't know about a cam card, you can contact TFS and I'm sure they can hook you up. Meanwhile, some numbers:

Advertised duration: 298 degrees intake/ 325 degrees exhaust
Duration @ 0.50" lift: 236 degrees intake/248 degrees exhaust
Lift: 0.574 intake/0.595 exhaust
Lobe separation angle: 110 degrees
