Now how many of those guys that got a reground cam actually got the supporting mods to take advantage of it.

How would you adjust our lifters? They are HLAs. Yes they are self adjusting, but will that be enough? they are only made to extend so far.

Another thing to think of is how the cam is made.

What if our cam is cast, machined, and then the surface is hardened so that it can rub against the rocker.

If that is the case, when they grind on that cam they are taking off that hardened layer; Leaving the soft under layer exposed and soon you will have a cam with no lift and no lobes.
Or at least that is what an old-timer told me.

just some things to think about.
