    Default cams

    What are you guys using for cams on average panhead rebuilds? I have been using the J as it seems I don't have many options. It works, but seems like there should be something better.
    Thanks Willie

    Since the old Sifton 412 is no longer available, the J is the next best bet. I have Pans with both cams, and like the 412 a little more.

    S$S has an exact copy of the stock FLH cam for panheads and they are very nice.

    Thanks every one. I understand the Victory and the H are no longer available, but was hoping for replica or copy. I shall try the s&s. Now the big ???. I have sent out at least 12 engines with J cams. I have 2 that are hard starting or at least unpredictable. Many of the old rags that I take apart have H or something unmarked that measures out similar to that, and all seem to be easy kickers. I have checked and played with timing and fuel to no end but cam is the only thing haven't changed, or will it have any bearing on kick starting? Your thoughts Please. I should mention I use med. compression pistons ( 8.5 ). Also Linkert.
    Thanks Willie
