What grind cam is in your TT and why?

I have no clue what grind my cam is, but I suspect it's a stock cam for the '23 engine that's in it. It's an interesting question though. Folks who talk cam grinds are typically looking for higher performance. In a TT I suppose higher performance is mostly a state of mind. The darn things are geared so low you can almost drive it with the starter motor. My engine runs OK, but a little tired. It works fine in a TT. In a speedster it would be a disappointment.

Just my $0.02 worth. :-)

I am using a stipe 280. That is just what I did when I built the motor. Higher compression pistons, stock head, higher volume intake, 5:1 gears and overdrive auxiliary. Why? Just because that seemed like a reasonable package. To really know much, it would take dyno time to see what improvements in torque and hp it made and possibly “tune” it. Someone here recently talked of changing the cam timing to get more torque using this cam, if I recall. I don’t have much to offer other than guessing on a motor package when I rebuilt it and doing it because it seemed like it had to be some improvement and I was replacing those parts anyway. I am still learning so I have some room to grow while getting the drivetrain cleaned up and see if it is enough “motor” to pull higher speeds in the less than aerodynamic body. Not sure if this helps at all. TS

Like the others said, mine is bone stock. It was rebuilt before I got it, back in about 1970, & it had new babbitt poured, etc. and it runs good.

Stock, actually it is the exact cam that came out of it, no regrind or nothing.
