Subject: FTE Perf - Roller camshaft mods

Hi all. I have an early side oiler 427 low riser. I am thinking of
installing a roller cam in it, but I have heard that there are
extensive mods required to put a roller in a flat tappet motor. Can
anyone enlighten me as to exactly what mods need to be made? Can a
flat tappet cam be re-installed after the roller mods are made? I'd
like to know before I cut up my not-so-common block.

Thanks in advance,

Chad

on my 460, i needed a bronze cam plate, dist. gear, roller lifters, and
cam. you need adjustable rockers and guide plates. also, correct springs,
retainers and locks. and any other related hardware like hardened
pushrods. then, there might be things like clearanceing of the block
required for the lifter tie bars.

a flat tappet can be re-installed afterward anyway. on an fe, oil
restriction may be required too.

sorry, can't tell you more about an FE specific swap.
