The camshaft is to an engine as a conductor is to an orchestra. A lot rides on having the proper camshaft selected for your engine application. In Part 1 of this Steve Tech on camshafts, Steve Morris discusses lobe shape and the importance of choosing the right shape for your expected performance goals. Stay tuned
In this episode of Danny Soliz Says, Danny walks you through the importance of straightening your cylinder heads before milling the bottom so your valvetrain components can perform at their maximum capacity. Danny Soliz owns and operates Hill Country Performance & Machine in Spring Branch, TX.
Work smarter not harder! In this episode of Danny Soliz Says, Danny shows you how to remove your camshaft and lifters in an easy fashion without damaging the lifter bores or the lifters themselves.
In this episode of Steve Tech, Steve Morris of Steve Morris Engines talks about pushrods and what attributes you want to see in pushrods and what the effect of pushrods are in the valvetrain.
In this episode of Industry Insiders, we sit down with Billy Godbold, COMP Cams’ Valvetrain Engineering Group manager, to discuss all things camshaft, from common misconceptions to proper camshaft selection to lift, lobe separation, firing order, and much more.

In this episode of Steve Tech, Steve Morris tells you more about your engine’s valves and lash caps.
In this episode of Steve Tech, Steve Morris picks up from the Part 1 video to explain what you need to know for proper valve spring set up and how to prevent spring surge.
These kits include all the parts you need to complete your cylinder head build in one box.
Just keep in mind your application, your rpm range and horsepower goals. The valvetrain puzzle falls into place from there.
Valvetrain components all work in conjunction to allow air or the air/fuel mixture in and exhaust gases out of the engine, and the selection process for the proper parts can be complex.
The valvetrain is one of the most critical components in any engine build, be it stock or performance. The lifters, pushrods, rockers and springs must all be strong and stiff enough to handle the loads and RPMs the engine will encounter, and they have to be durable enough to go the distance.
