I'd like to know whether anyone can recommend a good Model T cam re-grinder. I know Chaffin's and Ford-n-More grind cams, but are there some other good options?
Delta Camshaft in Tacoma, WA does my regrinds.
I use Scheinder Cams in San Diego
Every cam grinder will produce a cam that looks good. Its hard to find someone who re-grinds Model T cams properly. A properly re-ground T cam will produce better power. Try Specialty Machine in Plymouth, WI. They make new T cams and also properly re-grind T cams.
Norfleet Machine in Dallas does a good job. I am running a cam they reground for me.
Well, both Chaffins and Ford-n-more knows what they're doing, so no reason to risk it by going elsewhere?
In the Dallas, Texas area as Ted said, Norfleet Machine does a fine job. I have one of his reground cams in use in my Model T now and doing fine. I have been to his shop and seen his operation. Very old school, but he's been in business a long time and knows what he's doing. Most everyone in the old car hobby in our area knows him. He has an amazing collection of cam profiles for just about anything with wheels on it.

Rick Carnegie of Strong engine who is associated to Antique Auto Ranch grinds most of the cams in the Montana 500 one of which I believe was in this years winning car also in my car none any better.
I send all of mine to rick and I will be sending him another next week
Probably could use some phone numbers for these.
I've had really great success with Glenn Chaffin's reground camshaft. They perform very well,good in the hills good top end,no guessing.
Our cams are designed to give you both a very good low end for climbing hills and an improved high end for high speed. They have been optomized for street driving and perform very well in the hills. My 1913 will climb a moderate hill in high gear while increasing speed and will go 50 MPH on the flats. That's too fast foe me in a Model T!
Thanks for all the suggestions, Guys. I'll check them out.
