    Degreeing an FE Camshaft



    I am building a 390 and am degreeing the cam. In other engines I've done, I just used the standard intake-centerline method. However, it has been awhile since I built an FE motor. Is there anything different or specific I should know about degreeing an FE camshaft?

    I am using cylinder #1, finding TDC and then zeroing my degree wheel and finding the degrees at .050 of each side of maximum lift adding these two and dividing by 2 to hit my cam card's intake centerline of 105.

    Is there anything different with an FE?

    Sounds right to me. Just make sure you have true tdc.
    A Ranchero is NOT an El Camino
