OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Web Cam Type 4 Camshaft, 73 Grind, (262 Duration, .426" Lift), Solid Lifters, 00-472
Web Cam Type 4 Camshaft, 73 Grind, (262 Duration, .426" Lift), Solid Lifters, 00-472


 
Web Cam Type 4 Camshaft, 73 Grind, Solid Lifters, 00-472 is designed for Type 4 engines, and it's specs are .426" Valve Lift with stock 1.3:1 Rockers, 262 degrees of advertised duration, and 224 degrees of duration at .050". This works well with stock FI too!

We do not recommend this grind with the stock Solex 32/34 PDSIT carbs with the central idling system, but it's an excellent choice with individual idle circuits used in PDSITs, Kadrons, ICTs, IDFs, and DRLAs

Web Cam camshafts are what we consider a "High End" camshaft, they are fantastic! You can have the exact cam you want, you select the Lobe Center and Clearancing, but these camshafts cost a lot (they are worth it). Web Cam always is State Of The Art in their grinds, they aren't using grinds from 30 years ago, ALWAYS the latest technology! If you don't have the budget for a Web Cam grind, you will probably be happy with a SCAT Type 4 Grind.

This particular Web Cam grind is basically a solid lifter version of the stock FI Grind. This is fantastic with Automatic Transmissions too!

This is a nice upgrade on stockish engines, it's an outstanding bus cam! HD Springs are required! This cam works best with Compression from 7.8-8:1. Power band is from idle-4500.

Stock Lobe Center is 108 degrees, if you are not sure which one to get, 108 is a good choice. Tighter Lobe Centers (100-105) will generally increase low end at the expense of top end by increasing valve overlap. Wider Lobe Centers are often used for turbocharged applications. We offer a range of Lobe Center options for guys that have researched the topic thoroughly, and want to order a cam with a specialty configuration.

The Stroker Option provides more lobe to crank/rod clearance, it's a good idea if you are building an engine with a 78mm stroke crank or larger.
