The biggest problem we've found with the Model A is the main journals. The center main is always worn from .002 to .008 inches even though it looks OK visually. This journal also drives the oil pump. A worn Model A cam often causes a knocking noise within the block. We correct the problem by building up all three main journals, using industrial hard chrome. This also prevents the rusting frequently seen on the ends of worn Model A cam mains. We also undercut the billets to allow for more lifter side clearance.
Our reground cams are available with the stock Model A grind, a modified Model B grind or a special street performance grind. (Custom grinds are available, too.)
