Best Tips for Breaking in a New Camshaft
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- The
first few minutes of operation will determine the long-term survival of
your flat-tappet camshaft. More agressive lobe designs, stronger
valvesprings and changes to the additives in modern motor oils makes a
"wiped" cam lobe much more likely than in the days of classic muscle cars.
These are a few very important tips for properly breaking in your high
performance flat tappet camshaft.

351 Cleveland in 55 Ford : Nasty Cam + BIG exhaust = MUSIC
Spotted this old '55 Ford, pretty straight, but obviously no minty garage
queen original or fancy restored show car. Hmmm... cop wheels & fat
traction bars? Tracked down owner, talked '55s for a bit (had a black Vic
way back when) & asked him if he'd mind popping the hood for pix.
Him "OK, but first whatcha think's in there?"
Me "Uh, 272, 292, maybe 312 Interceptor?"
Him "Nope, that was long ago. Put a built 390 in there, blew it up. Built a
427, blew that up too. This is a *real* motor here. 351 Cleveland, son."
Me "OK... Wouldn't wanna fire that up, would ya?"
Too bad I didn't get a clip when he barked the tires on the way out of the
lot, heh heh.

Basic Engine Building DVD - Chapter 60: Camshaft Break-In
If you have a new camshaft, the break-in procedure is critical. Follow our
guidelines and you won't flatten a cam lobe and ruin the internals of your
engine. The basic formula is 20 minutes @2000 rpms and never going below
1500 rpms. Make sure not to let it idle. Changing from 1500 to 2500 rpm
every few minutes will help the cam break-in as well.
