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.

Installing a Ford Synchronizer
Ford Camshaft synchronizer's are a common failure. Some techs aren't
familiar with them so they may not be comfortable with them. Unfortunately
the service manuals aren't very clear in describing the install process.
I've made this video to help you understand them, and show how to properly

440 Camshaft drive FAIL!!!
So our rebuilt 440 with only 300 miles (at most) on it, developed a problem
when stopping at a traffic light, it wouldn't idle. It had lost 20 deg. of
ignition timing, so we twisted the distributor, and it ran well again. Then
a short time later it did the same thing again, another 20 deg. of timing
lost. We couldn't twist the distributor far enough, so had to pull and
adjust the drive gear, to get it firing at the right time, but this time it
wouldn't run quite right, and lost top end power.
We tried everything a group of us could think of, but in the end pulled off
the timing cover, to discover that the single bolt drive with 1 locating
pin had suffered a major failure! We hope no valves are bent, but are still
determining that, 2 chrome moly pushrods are bent, the timing sprocket is
trashed, and we are NOT Amused!!! These were all brand new name brand
parts, so why did they fail???
We will be going with a 3 bolt camshaft sprocket retainer this time!
Watch the 2015 Ford F-450 6.7L Diesel Super Duty Debut at the State Fair of Texas
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) Ford introduced its 2015 F-Series Super Duty
lineup at the Texas State Fair and the big news is a better Power Stroke V8
turbo diesel engine. They've also beefed
up the F-450 to make it even tougher. The new Power Stroke features a
larger GT37 turbocharger that measures
72.5 millimeters in diameter versus the smaller GT32 it replaces which came
in at 64 millimeters. This means Exhaust gases have a larger surface area to spin
the turbo so you'll get extra power.
