    Adjustable Cam gear

    Anyone know if the adjustable cam gear from Mookeeh for a STARQUEST 2.6 fit a 2.6 from an 82 ram 50 like mine. Just wondering, cause i thought most 2.6 parts are interchangeable.

    yes it will although it really won't make much of a difference with a stock cam and can easily do more harm than good by over advancing the timing. I have considered one for my 1980, but never got one, even though I have a stepped up cam to put in mine. I just run mine at 10 btdc and let er rip.

    I was thinking that if I got one of those and say a performance cam from Top End or regrind from Schneider cams it would in give me a whole lot of timing curve to play with. Then I in my theory I would have no need to index the cam just play with the timing a little and done.

    Oregon Cam has a higher duration grind on file for our trucks, $70 + your core. Dunno bout shipping, but the old boy that runs the place I bet will work with you. He's fun to talk to, as well. Nothing like an old gearhead! = )

    I would advise not going with TEP (Top End Performance) unless you like to pay 3x the value of a part. I have a Schneider regrind, but I can't speak for it either way as its sitting in my garage next to the magna M6 head that I havent put on yet

    Cool thanks for the info guys. Acuta73 do you know off hand what the lift duration is on your bump stick. I not looking for race performance more like and RV for little more more torque.

    Not sure what the recipe was, but I asked for a street/tow grind and he had a card on-hand with some minor searching. I explained my engine specs (G54b, max bore, flat pistons, street polish, MSD ignition, 38DGES) and that's what he pulled. The grind changes with hydro-roller arms (Penny knows the offset, but still won't tell me if the exhaust/intake are common. LOL).

    Oregon Cam: 360-256-7985 (they are actually in Vancouver, Washington just North of Portland, Oregon)

    Give him a call, see what he says.

    I do ?!? Why would you think that ?!? I know there is a shift for the hyd lifters and a change in duration, but other than that, its a cam grinders secret recipe. If you are talking about the rocker arm ratios from regular hyd to roller rockers, its 1.5 stock, 1.6 roller. The roller rockers are from a 3.0 v6 mitsu motor and the lifters are interchangable I believe. If you go the roller rocker route, tell the cam grinder so he can adjust the profile to prevent valves hitting the pistons. For the roller rockers, both intake and exhaust are 1.6. Have fun!!!

    LOL, ok, it was the ratio I was thinking of (still an offset of sorts, I guess). Thanks on the rocker arm question. Was driving me nuts why I could only find one in the parts catalogs with nothing saying whether they were exhaust or intake nor saying they were common.

    They are the same because they don't have jet valves on the v6s - the rockers are fairly cheap too new considering the 2.6 arms are more and not roller. If you are changing from mechanical rockers to hydralic rollers, be sure to modify the shafts to supply oil to the lifters; go to WWW.b2600.com for details on the shafts and many other details on our engines.

    I have hydro rockers, atm. The jets were mechanical, and now gone. Only change will be from hydro-rider to hydro-roller.

    $18 each from Discount Import Auto locally.

    ah yes an 86 does have the hyd setup, but the info still applies for those who don't know and are considering the swap.
