Dial-A-Cam, the ultimate adjustable cam gear   Price: 200
After the Dial-In-Cam being off the market for decades, the new Dial-A-Cam is now available for all 1961 and later Type-1, 2, & 3 flat cams using a 3 bolt gear. This is the most quickly and easily adjustable cam gear on the market with the widest adjustment range. While most other cam gears can be adjusted +/-4 degrees, the Dial-A-Cam can be adjusted up to +/-8 crank degrees, in two degree increments.

Simply remove the oil pump, remove the locating screw, loosen the three main screws, slightly rotate the gear or cam until the holes for the desired degree point line up, then re-install the locating screw and tighten all four screws. No goofy offset washers to loose or drop in the case. No engine disassembly. No guesswork. The cam timing will be exactly where you set it, every time.

There are various reasons to advance or retard the cam timing. It can be used while degreeing the cam to correct the timing of a cam or gear that is slightly off and it can be used to change the performance of the engine.

EFFECTS OF CAM TIMING

______ADVANCING_________________
Builds More Low-End Torque
Begins Intake Event Sooner
Opens Intake Valve Sooner
Decreases Piston-Intake Valve Clearance
Increases Piston-Exhaust Valve Clearance

_____RETARDING___________________
Builds More High-End Power
Delays Intake Event
Keeps Intake Valve Open later
Increases Piston-Intake Valve Clearance
Decreases Piston-Exhaust Valve Clearance

Degreeing in your cam means synchronizing the cam's position with the crankshaft. A few degrees of misalignment can affect the engine's operation dramatically. In a stock engine, you would only need to line up the timing marks on the gears and the cam would be degreed, but with a group of aftermarket components (camshaft, crankshaft, gears) all with their own quality control and tolerances when installed, can cause some misalignment. You can never be sure that the cam is in its correct position until you degree it in. I have seen gears 1- 2 cam degrees off of zero and cams with advance ground into them. For best performance, you should degree in all performance camshafts.

The Dial-A-Cam is available as a steel straight cut gear with a crank gear, an aluminum helical gear and a stock OE magnesium gear. Send in your cam and I will convert it and return it with the gear of your choice, shipping included. You can also choose the adjustment range, since most applications may not require eight degrees of adjustment. The standard gear has +/-6 degrees of adjustment range and includes socket button head screws, lock washers and detailed instructions. You can also send in your own gear with your cam to convert. If you send in your gear, it must be the offset washer type with slotted holes or non adjustable. Each gear is hand finished and may have slight imperfections that don't affect function, however, every gear and cam are interchangeable. This is a clean sheet design and not compatible with the original Dial-in-Cam.
