    Here is the Comp cam sheet that was in the

    glove box for it when I assumed the car. Honestly not sure how to read it haha.

    Duration at .050 lift, 218*/218*, LSA 110*, degree to 106*. It's a Chevy cam adapted to a Buick. Operating range is 1500-5500 RPM. Works with all stock components. Buick engines like more exhaust duration than intake duration, a split duration cam.


    Might like a small converter.

    Another question- I pulled the axles out and once I get the new gears in can I just slide them back in? Do I use a rubber mallet to press them back into the axle tube? I ask because when I pulled them out looks like it all came out on the axle.

    seat the axle the best you can and draw the bearing seal assembly down with the plate nuts.

    I have a question I'm new to buicks as well. I have a 72 skylark with the 350. Was wondering where to get a good limited slip differential for the car?
