I needed to get this information so that I could pass it along to Comp Cams. They needed it to help set me up with the proper valve springs and retainers.
I thought this would be good information for those that needed it. If you’re going to ‘blueprint’ an engine, you’re going to need to be able to get this information.
As stated in the video, there is a special tool for this, but this method will work just fine.
