15. CRANKSHAFT KITS
A perfectly ground crankshaft (.010 or .020) supplied with rod and main bearings, all set
to install. INCLUDES new crank gear, used pump eccentric & used bronze gear. Nitrided (hardened) cranks are much stronger and were original on Turbos and 140HP.
ADD B to the end of any part number (ex. C5081NGCB) and the bronze gear will be the new repro. Casting numbers on cranks 196063=5607 and 196469=8409.

CAMSHAFT BREAK-IN
To insure long camshaft and lifter life, please follow these steps:
1. Lube the new cam with cam lube supplied with new cam.
2. Only use new lif ters and apply a thin layer of cam lube.
3. Add ZDDP to your break in oil & with each oil change (one bottle supplied with
each cam).
4. Adjust lifters accurately (see page 394).

“ABOUT CAMS” Camshafts are one of those “great mysteries of life”. To some people cams are specific numbers, ramp profiles and totally understandable.
To other people a cam just “does what I want”. A cam grinder could grind a million different Corvair cams, but in the real world, these can be condensed to 5-10 cams.
We offer two dlfferent “lines” of cams. We’ve sold most of the “Clark” cams on this page for over 25 years. The basic cam designs are out of the 1960’s & 70’s and
have pleased 1,000’s of customers. The Performance cams were developed and refined during the 1980’s using newer developmental technology & “knowledge”
producing a broad power range.
NEW CAMS: These cams are ground on new castings (billets) and are your best investment. They star t with “oversize lobes” for the grinder to start with so he does not
have to make any compromises. You must use new lifters.
REGROUND CAMS: These give you a good inexpensive cam but have some drawbacks. Because the grinder is starting with “full worn lobes” you end up with “smaller
lobes” to get the correct grind. It is necessary to start with what is there and “grind down”. This will have a slight effect on valve train geometry and is part of the reason
these are only used on “milder” grinds. NEW LIFTERS ARE A MUST. REGROUND CAMS NOT SUGGESTED FOR 14 0 OR TURBO.
NEW LIFTERS: New lifters are a must on new or reground shafts. The reason is that the bottom of the lifter and the cam lobe are designed such that the lifter will rotate.
If both are not new the wear will be excessive.
INSTALLING CAM GEARS: Cam gears must be correctly installed or they can be permanently damaged and may even rotate on the shaft. We are equipped to install
your cam gear so you are ready to install your complete camshaf t.
GM CAMS? Most of the GM cams we offer will give you acceptable service but you will probably be happier with our 260 or 270 grind or the Performance “10” or “20
Series Cams. If you are considering GM cam 3839891 for 196469 110 & 140 engines you should read the “CORSA Corvair Technical Guide”. Basically they suggest
that it was a good all around cam, with faults. They claim GM found the cam induced multiple valve “bounce” and gave less low-end torque. This is probably par t of the
reason the “304” was offered as the replacement. The spec listings we’ve seen for GM cams are, for the most part, unrealistic, so we do not list them.
