    Thanx Tim for clearing this up, yes anyone who may believe only 8 cam profiles were manufactured and used is either quite misinformed or downright delusional. Being this thread was created for discussions on the Industrial engines, cam profiles and heads would be many. I of course against better historical judgement should have added in as a Blog, and like Tim, do not want to participate on this forum on a regular basis. Small Block Chevys, geesh that the best one could come up with.....

    There may have very well been more than 8 cam profiles for the 230 engine alone. Cars truck, from the start of this engines reign until it's end. The industrial applications, the Agriculture applications, the 2 bbl and higher compression applications the 1960s versions of this engine...

    1960 Dodge truck engines 230 ci, 23 inch, and most likely 8 to 1 compression and could be near a 130 hp. http://www.t137.com/registry/help/otherengines/19581968engines.html

    And here is the biggest perplexing circumstance that I cannot explain why or what is the cause. When I was redoing y duals exhausts mufflers, fund with straight pipes or especially 1 muffler on and 1 off. The result is the engine would spin Check this out at 16 seconds, spinning 4500 RPM with a stock engine and cam, dual carbs and exhaust though. I will attach a screen shot too

    some of the industrial engines are cammed for lower rpm and max torque. I have no idea which engines would get what. Some are also supposed to be low compression, but they all are for the most part. What kind of take off acceleration do you have and what type of highway speed are you cruising at? Can you keep up with in town modern day traffic?

    Here is the IND 265 head and a late 50s 250 truck head, other than CC volume and depth I see very little CC design differences.
