Re: now i am pissed!!!

i doubt the cams would ever have that amount of tq or pressure on them to make the cam gear slip. You used the cam to brace the entire rotating assembly... How bad did it slip? Are you gonna have to break it down again and degree them again?

I don't think that gear would ever move on regular engine use. Otherwise MPH wouldn't do it on their 700hp KB cars.
