Re: SBC Stepped Nose Cam in Early Block?

Gary, as I'm sure you're aware a traditional SBC cam sprocket is sort of a press fit on the cam and the dowel pin is a tight fit. in this type deal the 3 bolts really don't serve any locating function at all, just keep the sprocket from falling off.

I've always wondered how this works on a step nose deal.

Re: SBC Stepped Nose Cam in Early Block?

Gary, what is the plate, mild steel or is it hardened?

I think he's using the factory plate, it's hardened.

Re: SBC Stepped Nose Cam in Early Block?

Time now to make an addition here.

We've been able to put together about 12 installation kits to get the thrust plates mounted in placed, 1/2 are full kits with ALL the tooling and the other 1/2 are partial's.

The full kits have a modified pre-drilled thrust plate, attaching screws, locating fixture, clamping tool, correct drill bit, 3-pc tap set, and correct countersink.

Partial kits have no tooling included.

I have a one or two set up's to do the Dart "Little-M" blocks also. This casting uses a different size front cam bore hole than the OEM castings.

Thanks, Gary in N.Y.

P.S. For anyone interested in the details/pricing please contact me with an e-mail (preferable) if possible.
