There are plenty of cams out there on the market. I'm hesitant to recommend any brand or particular grind but keep this in mind. Look for a cam with low end torque. Do not go buying a cam that the power band starts coming in at 3000 RPM. With your "B" engine in your softail, the red line should be 6000 but I'd never turn one over about 5500. So,look for a good cam that the you are going to be in the lower end of the torque range during about 75% of the time. My personal preferrence in cams is the V-Thunder cams made by Competition Cams but there are many others that are just as good.

Good Luck

I have 1998 hyundai excel twin cam l have just put cams out of 1999 excel and it sound like it has a lumpy cam now at lidle.Now my car smells like unburnt fuel.can this be from cam not being in right at...

double check all youre timing marks . loosten tentioner and adjust cam.then tighten chain .manually turn motor over twice then check timing marks again this is a little tricky sometimes because when you tighten the tentioner the cam will move. you have to have the chain in a spot to compensate for this movement.

Blown head gasket

please read all before starting not to bad to change did you check compression if your sure that's what it is its about 4hr job.start by putting #1 tdc intake side.note where vacuum hoses are can mark with gray or yellow perm marker remove breather all plug wires exhaust manifold then intake manifold remember what bolts in and whats nutted on.remove break booster cross vacuum hose and egr control valve on left rear of intake side remove vale cover ((you'll have to get something to hold tension on timing chain so not to let tentioner come out inside timing chain cover when removing came gear)) remove head bolts only in off order so not to put tension in one area. do not remove cam shaft bolts and do not turn cam shaft at all after timing gear is removed take off head and check piston walls for wear replace gasket and put back in GOOD LUCK

You must reset the timing cause you can not reset just one tooth on it and yes you have to lock itin place cause the tentioner can nock it out of place when you increase the preasure

1994 chevy 3500 1 ton dump hyd problem when I activate the hyd unit, I can hear the pump running, and it seems to develope a load on the motor, but the cylinder does not lift. I had the dump body...

There should be a bleeder valve on the cylinder itself somewhere. Otherwise with air in the system, Im surprised no hyd fluid came out the top of the cylinder!
