Unfortunately, I am the opposite of knowledgeable when it comes to engine work and I'm having a tough time with my 460. How did you figure out the cam was shot? My #2 cylinder will not fire and I just can't figure it out. No bent/broke pushrod, rocker, or spring but the header tube definitely is a different color than all the others. Collapsed lifter not opening the exhaust valve?? Cam lobe ground flat?
I posted this thread to try to get some help but it seems to have went stale.
Gary Dentinger lives a couple houses down from me. My parents do business with Dentingers Feed and Seed. Olsons has a Diamond T hidden away I just learned about this fall. Are you part of their family or just friends?
