4-cam pan

Pretty much anything not covered by the topics above. Short lived production bikes or vehicles, Electrical, Tires, Paint, Brakes, etc. Use this for tech questions, and "Shoot the Bull" for general conversation, no tech.

Anything is possible. First problem: how ya gonna oil the heads? Then your early pan cylinders would have to be drilled inside for drains. The rest should be just as easy, like moving your timing mark.

It'll be very tall if you use the U rod set. Other alternative is the OHV rod set, but rod angle will be sharp, etc. U cams are too tall & too mild for OHV compression & rocker ratio (1.5-1 means .562" lift). Cams can be re-ground to OHV profile (see KNS Cycle for this: )
Also need minor re-alignment on the pushrod tube seats in the boxes and the top of the U tappet blocks.
