Determining the proper centerline of a camshaft lobe to the existing centerline of the engine block lifter bore has never been easier when using a new tool developed by Schumann Sales and Service.
Cam manufacturers and engine builders all recognize the fact that the centerline of the cam lobe and the centerline of the lifter bore must coincide in order to use optimum high pressure valve springs with fast rate of lift, solid flat tappet camshafts. Have you ever tried to eyeball this alignment? The critical ideal misalignment is plus or minus .015” of coinciding centerlines. Some manufacturers and engine builders spend tremendous amounts of time determining the 16 centerlines required.
