Ok heres the deal i faught with my valves for a long time and finally got frustrated and ripped the valve cover off and saw that the rockers are toast and the cam is fried. Now i got a stage 2 web cam and hardened rockers real cheap and they look perfect. Got the rockers in and thats no big deal but the cam i got the old one out and the new one in do i need 2 cover it in oil before i put it all back togeather? The manual i got is like a clymer or something like that and it dosnt give the greatest detail. Thanks Guys

It's always a good idea to coat anything in oil before you drop it in since it is on the top end.

Agree^^^^^^ Make sure you install the cam with the lobes down and piston at TDC on the "T" mark on the flywheel.

I would use locktite on the cam gear bolts, because I've seen a lot of them back out.
