    Default Cam question

    I have a 468 with closed chamber heads. I had a 292H10 cam and im going to try and fit a 288AR10 full roller cam. Think it will clear the pistons?

    I will have to be checked along with installing springs to handle the roller. If these are OEM heads you might have to have the valve guides cut down for 2 reasons: Accept PC seals that will fit inside an inner spring and make shure there is enough clearance between the bottom of the retainer and top of the valveguide.

    Sure did, and it already has PC seals in it, along with some good head work.
