Cam Tech 101, Attention to Detail

This is a 454 in a ’55 Chevy 2-door that is currently receiving a brain transplant (camshaft swap) for a more desired roller camshaft with a lumpy idle and a bit more grunt!
The camshaft is “degree’d-in” and nearly ready for reassembly. This application required a 4-degree delay on the camshaft timing for optimal intake valve-to-piston clearance.  This is critical on a big block Chevrolet engine with dome pistons.
