you must get that special wedge tool, if you try to bypass this, the chains will loosen and the ratchets will expand and you will be in trouble.. you will havt to take a part the whole front end to reset the ratchets (a bitch!!) you can make your own spanner wrench from a piece of metal stock from lowes etc. down load the manuel and have it readly available. google 4.7 camshaft install and there should be another forum where a guy shows a lot of pic, with a step by step process. torque wrench a must.. put the cam caps and bolts on a shoe box and make sure they go on EXACTALY the same as they came off, even the bolts. i beleive theres a mark on the crank pully and the front of the block that reference the top dead center mark. good luck with your project.. by the way theres a matching manafold thats suppose to work well with that cam. check where you bought it..
That's weird, Dan told me I would be fine with the stock springs. He did say that springs were out there from Beehive if I wanted them for an extra $150 or so. I passed. I paid $750 for the cams. I am still waiting for them though. I ordered them over two weeks ago. Hopefully this is the week. The anticipation is killing me.
I have a bill for $785 for the cams and install tool from Fastman. I have not received the cams yet so maybe he will include the springs, I don't know. I did have a conversation with him about KRC's pricing and he said that they do not include springs. I am confused now. I know Dan is out of town and he would be the best person to chime in here. He also told me his cams are cut a little differently than KRC's to take more advantage of the low rpm torque. :dunno:
How long does it take KRC to send out cams? I really enjoyed talking to Dan and that is what sold me. He took his time and explained a lot to me. Maybe I am getting the short end of the stick, anyone care to chime in? I would like to think I wasn't. :buttkick:
