Removing the old timing gear, chain, and lower crank gear was a cinch. Then we pulled out the old stick and checked the cam bearings for wear. Our new Comp cam should really bump things up a notch. After all, with 0.520/0.540-inch intake/exhaust lift, the new cam should be able to take advantage of the larger Brodix lungs. We washed the cam in solvent to remove any rust inhibitors and foreign material, applied engine assembly lube, and slid it into place.
