I am building a SBC 350 with my dad (we share this account on this site) and we watched a video that came with a book about rebuilding a SBC.
The book had info on how to, but the video did not show whether it was nessesary.

So we lined up the dots on the cam gear and crankshaft gear, and what we want to know is whether it is nessesary to degree the camshaft for a mild street engine.

Thanks.

I`ve never degreed one, even so I`ve seen it recommended so many times, I never worried with it for a street engine. If I were building a race engine, I`d degree it.

It isnt neccessary but Ive seen alot of posts on this topic, and it is always recommended that you degree your camshaft even if it is only a street engine.
