All,

Once I finish the next batch of DCOE Return Spring Brackets these cam cards will be in the works. I have two styles happening, one similar to the conventional Shankle design used to check and scribe new marks and another version that allows you to verify the marks without removing the caps.

Hoping to offer two price points. Cheaper in bamboo and a bit more expensive in stainless.

More to come...

102 was the stock ex timing for the SPICA cars except 75-76 which were 114 - according to the Shankle manual.

I'll take a set of these either in aluminum or wood. Verify the marks without removing the caps. Would prefer aluminum.

I have the factory tool for the other style.

Thanks

@andylarry @tom freiberger You have been added to the list.

Here is an early protoype of the over cam version in play. This is a head from an 1981 Spider (with intake timing of 118 degrees). I think it is more suited for setting the cam and checking the timing than it is verifying the cam cap marks as it is hard to see through the gap. I played with the idea of a transparent acrylic version, but it was too brittle (poly-carbonate does not cut well on a laser). I think this style in conjunction with the other would be the complete package. Beyond that you should be using a degree wheel.

The final will have an extended base to be more stable on the gasket surface of the head.

Please put me in line for the more expensive ones.
I'm spending my kids money so what the hell.
