    Sure. You just need a custom cam ground for the face profile.

    I wonder, how many of these flat tappet camshafts are the grinders backing? Any?

    You see enough of them on here to realize it is more and more common, and the results are all pretty much the same. Some, depending on the owner/builder are even worse. Like the continued to run the thing long after it was all over. When the valves no longer open, and the motor stops, then they are shocked to see the lifter concaved and broken. DUH!

    Curious Motor Monkey, how long did that take?

    if in doubt, throw them in the trash and replace, or on the carnage shelf.

    Somebody needs to come up with a flat tappet with a removable botto so you can replace it, cahnge the cam and try it again......and again, and again.

    Wait, didn't a company called Performance Research make a billet steel falt tappet with a removable rotating foot?

    Chris, wasn't there/is something like that out there? For a couple thou a set?

    With damn near every single flat tappet that has ever been sold or ever will be sold going flat, I am sure glad that I am too hard headed to recognize this undeniable fact and haven't had any issues... Guess it's like Wild E. Coyote... as long as he didn't look down when he went off the cliff, he was ok.

    I think I'm gonna build another engine this weekend with a flat tappet just to be an asshole... perhaps every time a flat tappet is used a kitten dies.,

    Oh stop beating yourself on the chest I bet more than a couple falt tappets are successfully broken in every single day across the country. I bet a couple more go falt as well.
    Sometimes I have to wonder how much of it is the cam/lifters, or the oil, or the person and the break in procedure. Its why I ask if the cam grinders were backing many of the cams that get returned.

    The last flat tappet I ran I used Isky 8005A springs which is a pretty stout flat tappet spring, and had no problems. Of course it wasn't some insane .600 plus lift, with some insanely fast flank
