I Let Joe take over my camera to follow his Chrysler 383 build over the past few weeks, we want to bring you the tips and tricks of rebuilding this Big Block.
In this third episode Joe will guide you through the processes of degreeing the camshaft on this Chrysler 383 Engine. How to degree a camshaft can be a confusing and tedious task if you are new to engine building. Joe walks you through the process he uses to ensure the camshaft is correctly installed. While using a degree wheel, dial indicator, a home-made piston stop, and a bit of math Joe explains how he completes the process of degreeing his cam.
Joe is installing a Hughes Engines Whiplash Cam in this build. The Whiplash camshafts are designed to give a mean lope at idle while maintaining performance all through the rpm range.
