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.

1969 Ford F100 351 Cleveland
This is my 93,000 original mile '69 F100 that spent 27 years abandoned in a
barn. I yanked the tired 240 six and 3 on the tree and installed a built
351C and TopLoader 4 speed. The Exhaust is all homebuilt using 2.5" stainless
steel mandrel bends, stainless X-pipe, and stainless Magnapack mufflers. I
freshened the interior, put some wider wheels, a 2" front 4" rear drop,
power steering, power brakes, swaybars, and all poly bushings. Except for
the wheels, the paint is 100% original!
