Re: Need 427 build advice
The block I have is a Gen IV. Using a cam button is ok with me.
You can use the Gen6 cams in any block. They all have the two bolt holes for the cam retainer plate and it makes it all so much easier. You do need to use the matching timing chain set. There were a very few early 396 blocks that were not drilled but very rare and you can drill and tap them anyway.
