I have a mint ya-yu air cleaner, everything there, ready to put on. As soon as I do my car it will have the correct factory colored striped hoses also.

I don't own either one yet. I'm looking for opinions from people running these cams

Sounds like it's your driving style that's the issue, not the engine choice! Maybe not floor it every time the lights change. There's a  lot of guys driving big power machines who can move off without laying rubber.
DriveTrain / Old faithful or stump puller???
« Last post by Bigmoe on December 04, 2016, 04:30:57 PM »
I'm building a 461, Ross flat tops, zero decked, 290 edelbrock d-ports from butler, 1.5 roller rockers, rpm manifold, cliffs q-jet, 4 tube exh. Car is a 78 ta. 4 speed 3.42 rear . Street car, some 1/8 mile trips too. Been looking at SD's stump puller and old faithful. Do I really want my power band to be right off idle???  I had a hard time not spinning the tires with the worn out stock 400. But the OF cam doesn't come on till 2500. Could I advance it a few degrees to bring it in sooner? I have had too many sleepless night thinking about this. I'm ready to lay my money down and make a pick. Except I just can't pick!!!

Made some edits above. Could still use some opinions on whether my combo sounds well thought out and if it works with my criteria, especially the vacuum for power brakes.

The fan switch only has speeds, not on or off. It always runs.

I would just go over the process of elimination. There's not that many things to go through in the blower motor system and can probably be found with a test light. See if your getting power to the motor if you have to just run a quick hot wire to the battery and see if it spins. If it does it's something in between that right up to the fan switch. Electrical diagnosis can give some of the biggest headaches but this one is pretty cut-and-dry. Good luck
