        All you can do with mics is measure the base circle and lobe height, then subtract the base circle from the lobe height and multiply by 1.5 to get the lift at the valve....

        To figure out the rest, you need a degree wheel and dial indicator....

            Maybe talk to Crower and have them grind one after we figure out what specs we need...

            They made a nice cam for my ex's slant 6...

            Oregon cams is ok also...

            Neutral safety switch or bad ignition switch, but since it started fine with the slant 6, I would lean toward the neutral safety switch...

            Keep in mind that there are 3 different neutral safety switch roosters in the trans and you have to have the proper switch to match the rooster for it to work...

                          Well epic fail in Fargo, as many on here know my hound is a LEO 100 pound plus German Shepard named Hemi. She has been by my side for many years. Long story short we may have been rough housing a bit this evening and she ricocheted off the end table where my full glass of red wine was. Glass of red wine ended up on the carpet. Jodi (wife) was not amused. As she was on her hands and knees trying to save the carpet from a full glass of red wine spill event, I may have remarked about how good she looked on her knees. Needless to say the evening deteriorated from there. Dumb dog, even dumber master!

                                yeah, I think it is, I took the one out of the slant transmission and put it in place and it still does not work. I tried to start it from the solenoid and as it turned out the spark plug wires are SHIT and were giving weak spark. SO it is vacation time and I will continue messing with it Monday when I get back.

                                    That’s why you drink bourbon, not as likely to stain the carpet. Wife gets pissed and kicks us out if I start to rough house inside.

                                      I'm slipping, just a small glass of water to choke down my nighttime pills. Lol. I can make up for it tomorrow night!
