sorry i'm just now chiming in on this. remember that the readings that you take @ .050" lift are just that. the overlap that you are plugging into the cam calc is the overlap @ .050". To get the true overlap of your cams, you need to take your measurements at more like .001" of lift. Record these nu...

no offence op, but i think you need to take your car to a knowledgeable mechanic. take him a regular intake cam and have him narrow everything down. it just sounds like you are in over your head atm, no douche-baggery intended.

they look ok. the first lobe of the intake looks a little low to me. but that may just be the way it is in a 248/248 swap, since you have to rotate the cam back 4 links. they never are truly right. Im wondering if you moved the intake cam to the right to the next inner link, maybe that will help.

Dont mess with the dizzy yet. just snap a pic and get back with us. If both the front lobes are pointing at each other, spin the engine another 180*. If the cams a...

Bad idle and no power sound like the cams weren't installed properly. put the engine to tdc and verify that the intake cam is pointing at 9oclock and that the exhaust is pointing at 3oclock. after that, pull the dizzy and make sure it is stuck correctly. Please take a picture of the cams and post it.

Remember that .050" is the standard measure of when the valve begins to move. Any overlap that you figure isn't the total overlap but the overlap @ .050. The way I understand, to figure total overlap, you need to take measurements at .001" which is pretty much as soon as the ramp hits the shim pad. ...
