    Looking for a new cam - Any suggestions?

    Hey there. I've got a 300-2 Buick V8 from my 1967 Buick Special 4-door sedan that's in the process of being torn down for an engine rebuild. I'd like to put a higher lift cam into it (for that sexy muscle car lope), but I've been told that the limited production run of the engine makes it hard to find parts that fit. So far, I only have this:

    I'm not even sure if that one will fit, so I could use some help!

    Rover had the aluminum version of this v8 architecture in production up until 2004, so tell em "Bullocks" when they claim you can't get parts.

    Rover did convert everything to metric dimensions so i'm not sure if you'd have to bush the cam bearings but i don't think so. even if you had too bush the cam or rebore the cam tunnel, any decent machinist should be able to handle that.

    www.TAPerformance.com ( Arizona ) and www.AluminumV8.com ( Michigan ) are two domestic US suppliers who should be able to answer any questions you have on this and source cams for you.
