WOW, GLAD you survived the hospitals.  BOTH This nation and the other have been in trouble. Great at least that your fingers are working. Lately any notes are an improvement.

You will like it. I've had them grind a few for me. They ground this one from the original hydraulic core I sent them. Ken is very good at what he does. I thought at first it was a strange thing they could "make" a solid from a hydraulic, but he explained that the older cored were hardened clean to the core and that he had done this for decades. He changed it from "whatever" lobe separation it was (probably around 115) down to a 106. Boy did that take some material! The base circle is almost even with the core. Looks kinda like a cheater cam. Of course it required longer pushrods and since it now required an adjustable valve train I simply went with some Hot Heads adjustable pushrods. It worked out really well.

I had Oregon repair and regrind a roller cam for my little 153 inch four cylinder.  Ground for a hydraulic roller setup!!  I'm really wanting to find out how it will run, but I just got home from a two month stay in the hospital.  Gonna' order my pistons and rings and a new set of roller lifters in the next few days.

Maybe by the time that all arrives, I'll be in some shape to put it together!
