Graham Hansen, author of the best-selling SA Design title
How To Build Big-Inch Chevy Small Blocks,
takes the mystery out of camshaft and valvetrain function, selection,
and design. He covers camshaft basics, including a thorough explanation
of how a cam operates in conjunction with the rest of the engine and
valvetrain. He discusses technical terms like overlap, lobe centerline,
duration, lift, and cam profiling. Comparisons between roller and
flat-tappet cams are addressed and analyzed.
This book covers
rocker arms, lifters, valves, valvesprings, retainers, guideplates,
pushrods, and cam drives, as well as detailed information on how to
degree a cam and choose the proper cam for your application. Finally,
matching cams to cylinder heads, analyzing port flow, and proving it all
through dyno tests round out this informative volume.
