    I thought Racer Brown was a Crane owned company?? Could be wrong though.

    i am hoping for a nice strong street motor out of this cam. HeadWizard did you ever run a roller from them, with a small lift like this one?

    Isn't George actually Racer Brown??

    I have an SASE letter back from him, I think, back when I was looking for a cam for my 454 before I turned it into a 496.

    well when i first got this cam someone told me that racer brown was this guy.
    Company: Racer Brown
    Contact: Jim Doyle
    Phone Number: 410-866-7660
    Email: None
    Specialty: Custom Cam Grinding
    Location: Baltimore Maryland

    i call him and he knew what i was talking about but he had never ground one.
    and the spec at .050 was not it the book he had. He said he would have to find that lobe template and measure it if he could find it.

    Now i need to find me some good valves that will take roller spring at a good price that flows well my other set of valves might not be good enough.

    put my new short block together and measured the cam @ .010 it was 292 duration and @ .050 it was 240 duration. don't think i will have a problem running pump gas this time going to be about 10 to 1 compression.

    George replied back to me years ago.

    As for the CC 268HE, UDHarold designed it for them of Ultradyne fame!!

    As well as the new Lunati VooDoo hy-cam line..

    Thought I would reply to this 11 year old thread instead of starting a new one since I emailed Jim in Baltimore for some cam specs of the EH4.
    Here's one I just pulled out of an '86 block. Whats everyones opinion on the wear on the end of the cam. You can also somewhat see it at the rear of the block, and lastly cam lobe wear.

    And I'll add the front cam bearing too...
