    Gathering all the stuff for a cam swap. So far I have a Comp Cams Extreme 4x4 cam- 11-235-3 and Comp Cams Hyd Lifters- 812-16. This is all going in a 402 big block with 427 closed chamber oval port heads and Harland Sharpe full roller aluminum rockers. I'd like to keep all this Comp Cams stuff. So my question is which vavle springs should I get? The paper work with the cam says that for the warranty to be good, valve springs must be replaced too. Someone suggested the Comp Cam's 911-16's. Good choice? What do ya'all run on your big blocks? Here's a page with all the Comp Cams valve springs that Summit carries...

    Go to www.compcams.com and look up the part number for your cam in their catalog. One of the columns across from the part number will list the correct valve spring set to use with that cam. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Wow! That was cool. Thanks Dude. Took me awhile to find my cam, but it was worth it. 911-16 it is. Also found the part # for the push rods and timing set. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
