    About "Old" Racing Cams, I doubt anyone has ground more than one for a OHV Six in the last 40 or 50 Years, IF EVER, so not a surprise there either.
    I have helped you multiple times before as I did here, but no longer I can ignore you too if you don't want to hear the truth.
    Yes you have in the past. Thank you. Ted Harbit had the cam ground in 2005. And you did not answer the question, just responded in a sarcastic manner that "it's really old!" ALL of our stuff is REALLY old, and you did not answer my question.

    Thanks Doofus. You answered my question which was NOT answered by another post.

    Yes the Cam Grinders usually knew what to set the Valve Clearance at, usually quite a bit tighter than a Stock Factory Cam setting.

    FYI, the Stock adjustment is .023 to .025 Cold on Both or .025 to .027 Hot, the same as a V8.
    **** StudeRich, all of our engines are old! Now WTF do I use to check valve timing? I used to ignore you, but now understand why others think you are an ass.

    Found it. Now this is a non-stock cam.would you still use 0.020" the manual calls for, or the cam card clearance? (0.014" AFAIR) I'm leaning towards cam card, but what do I know?

    I'll have to dig into that then!

    I got it together and tried it today. Long story short, this engine did not like any less advance, yet 3-5 degrees more results in pinging. I'll try and find my old post about engine vacuum on this thing, and append it. I'm thinking the valve timing is off.

    Yep. You will be advancing the timing by moving the dist. CW, so you will compensate for that by moving the wires one space CCW.

    Some previous owner may have installed the dist. one tooth off. Studebaker wouldn't have built them such that you couldn't adjust the timing that little bit.

    It would be *THIS* owner that did that. I built the engine, and thought I had it correct. The timing has been close, but I'd like to see how it performs with a little more retard, see if that changes any of my running issues.

    Now that I've had coffee, I think I get it: I need to turn the distributor clockwise to get clearance, therefore I move the wires 1 place counter-clockwise to compensate. Correct?
