When you're building a hot Ford six, camshaft/valvetrain package deals aren't always available. Winterboer ordered his valve action la carte. This is an aggressive Clay Smith flat-tappet mechanical camshaft with 112-degree lobe centers. Clevite provided the dual-roller timing set. JP Performance was working on a similar timing set at press time. We'd like to see roller-tappet technology for these engines. According to Winterboer, they're working on this idea. Yella Terra 1.6:1 roller rockers, available from Classic Inlines, improve lift and reduce friction. Chrome-moly pushrods come from Rocker Arm Specialties.
