Plumber, can we get an update on the Cams? Hows it going? Smooth install? Is it tuned in? Torque increase?

Can't wait for some feedback on a stock motor!

I will know more tomorrow I talk to the mechanic tomorrow on when he is going to installing them. I was going to install them but I'm just like rocmoc to many thing going on right now.

Are you also advancing your cam timing by using an altered upper belt pully?

I was thinking about the question about changing the cam timing, would it be of any value to be able to change the cam timing while the engine is running and have the timing controlled by the computer, so the the timing can be changed for low speed and changed again for high speed? I think it would be doable.

Can't change the cam timing as it is all mechanical. There is thing that you could do to change it by manipulating the timing belt but very complicated to set up. You would have a longer belt to create some slack. That slack would then be taken up on one side or the other of the top pully, rotating the pully advancing or retarding it some. To messy to do.

I was thinking a linear actuator on the side going to the cam pulley and a spring loaded take up on the other and depending on what you need, the actuator pushes on the belt and backs off to advance or vise versa. That wouldn't be so tough would it? The linear actuator could be driven by a stepper motor.

Your idea is ok but there isn't any room under the cover.

ok plumber what a bout the cams ? dedub.

Well this is what happen and why I have not gave a cam update. I hire a mechanic with 40 years experience that I know for 30 years to do the job and it went wrong everybody I talk to says he didn't have it in time right and when he turn the key it bent six valves. So I had to have the head redone we have all that done but when it bend my valves it also broke and cracked some of my shimes so I had to fine some new shims. With the new cams the shims are not thick enough so you have to put a shim under a shim. But i found a shim thick enough so you don't have to put a shim under a shim I order them today so this is were I'm at

Sorry to hear that. This is why I am putting it off for a while. I'd hate to lose use of my Trooper through the summer. Hopefully the upgrade in torque will erase the bad memory. I just hope you remember what your Trooper used to feel like.
