  • Camshaft interchangability

    Can I use my camshaft from my 53, 232 in an early 60s full flow block? Thanks, Bert

    Yes, No, Maybe. Are the numbers cast or are they stamped into the cam? What are those numbers? Usually two groups of three digits.

      Your concern has more to do with the rockers and push rods than the block itself I believe.

            A good, & esp a new 232 cam is too rare & valuable to put in a later engine. Find the correct cam- they are in good supply...

              Berts question of if one could use a late model cam in an early 232 seems to be the answer simply as "YES", since the late cams still had the lobe for the fuel pump when it hadn't been there since the early 50's. So using an early cam in a late block would be the same.
