    Plenty of us have used Camtech cams including myself. No issues, did just what they said, then some. One of respected pros on here uses them for all his flat tappet stuff.

    I have 14 national records and 5 christmas trees plus heaps of state championships and all have been done with Crow Cams. So I guess you could say they are ok......

    Early or VN heads?
    Auto or manual?
    How much compression has this engine got?
    308 or 355 ?

    Seriously, I have a VN headed 355 with a 280 solid that runs bolt down YT Adjustable Street Terra roller rockers.
    The Street Terras handle the double Crane springs with no dramas.
    Iím guessing you YT roller rockers are non adjustable?
