It seems there are a lot of dead end roads when looking for General Kinetics Camshaft information, Lot of threads all over the web from years ago to current that lead nowhere, Well not anymore!!

No idea, I've looked everywhere and see no printing or copy right dates. It says "GK now in its 12th year" in the about GK section though, hang on....

And further along is "the capability of computer design promted don to start his own company in 1964 - General Kinetics" so I guess it was 1976 lol.

Pretty safe to say there are plenty of GK cams that won't be in this book with it being that old.

Can you look in the old Comp Cams catalog to see if you can find a SBC solid lifter roller cam that works from 4500 to 8500 rpms, has over .592" lift, and around a 300 duration. I can't remember the valve lash but I think it's around .018" for both the intake and exhauseI can't If you happen to find one can you PM me the specs.

Here is the cam specs that I have on the Excell spreadsheet for the S10:

IVO 44
IVC 76
EVC 44
EVO 76
Duration 300
Lobe center 106
Overlap 88
