Cam break-in was flawless. I've put 30-40 miles on her so far and runs GREAT! However, Tim Meyer did come across my pics on the 335 forum and contacted me with a concern. He said he's never built a 400 with a flat tappet set-up, and was concerned about the stock rockers binding up from the amount of Exh. lift, and possibly causing lobe problems with the cam, or pushrod issues. So, I'm gonna pull the valve covers and double check that I'm not "bottoming out" the rocker arms. Don't think it's an issue, but want to be sure. Other than that, she's runnin like a top!
