4.3l rebuild - cam options

4.3l rebuild - cam options

Postby doogaloo [OP] » July 28th 2020, 3:04am

My replacement engine is at the point where the builder needs to know what I intend to do with the cam. Stock? Or are there any options? The vans a '99 Safari.

A mercruiser boat cam works well. Just got to set the manual idle screw up a hair. I have had bigger they run better but your starting to get into idling issues then. A/C on in reverse it needs you to give it gas.
