i put the br6es equivalent that my local autoparts store had its a autolite 404 the thing would not start for the love of god with the 8
i appriecate any criticism and advice given please do. Im running the TM32 with stock needle in stock position with 200 main and 35 pilot. i might have a 40 pilot in it i dont remember as im running a velocity stack. ill pull it off tomorrow and take a look.
A quick question on the S cams... What would one expect to see in terms of max rpms with the s cams on a stock setup? Ballpark...Why do I ask?... I was really laying into it tonight and in both 2nd and 3rd I experienced a rev limiting phenomena. Valves bouncing? I can't say at what rpm. It was dark and I couldn't read the cheapo digi tach (magnetic pulse pickup basically). The tach records max rpm; told me 10,400 and I cannot believe that at all... Anyone else find out the top end on the s cams?
In the lower gears, it is possible to exceed safe rpm limits. At some point, the valve springs will lose control, and the valves could float, which can result in damage.I don't know how high you went, but if you plan to do more of that, it would be advised to get a better tach with a light.
The TM32 is pretty much maxxed out at 6200 rpm anyway, so there is not much point in going higher than that. It just stresses the engine more, and doesn't increase power. If you were racing, and had to hold on to a lead by revving higher to the finish line or something, that might be a reason. But for street riding, it's not really necessary.If you want 7000 rpm, you need a TM34 which is good to nearly 7000 rpm. You could use a 36 for 7200+ rpm, but that's getting into another custom manifold because our alloy manifolds do not fit the 36. And that is getting into short lifespan engine territory, especially with a stock bottom end.
Does this info vary for my build being that I am feeding 2 - 350 cylinders? I believe you said the TM32 should be good for about 6800 RPMs on my build?
