    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.

    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...

    Jack, I see you are in Spokane, would you have a stude 289 that you would like to sell? Thanks, Bert

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

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