Post valve lash???

on an early 350 with an after market solid lifter cam, what should the valve lash adjustment be. Im not sure what kind of cam it is, but its slightly radical and its high performance. All the books I have just tell me to adjust lash to factory or cam specs, but I need numbers. Help please????

I'm no expert on this, but I believe you should go to the manufacturer and get their advice.

You can get cam cards online off a cam company website.www.cranecams.com <a href="http://www.compcams.com" target="_blank">www.compcams.com</a> Maybe that'll help.

You won't be too far out if you lash 'em at 0.025".

I'd go even a little tighter than that, like .020" but if its an older cam .025" is probably pretty close to factory specs.
