I have been asked about the cam specs for a 1962 Corvette 327 FI, 360 HP. My BIL is adjusting the lash on his restored '62. He bought the engine (period correct) from a builder. I don't know that much about the early cars... My understanding is the Duntov 097 cam was used in performance solid lifter 1962 Corvettes. I think it was used from '57 until '63; after that the famous 30-30 radical cam was used. The 097 lash specs should be .008 and .018 hot. If you have knowledge regarding a different cam, please chime in. I really think the timing cover should be removed and check for numbers. I asked him to measure I/O valve lift and I can compare that to the specs I know of. Thanks in advance.
