Crane Cams has released its latest edition of the Cam Lobe Profile catalog with over 800 new profiles and a tutorial to help you pick the right cam for your engine. 


Whether it's for street performance or supercharged fuel applications, with more than 800 new cam profiles, Crane Cams will have something that will work for your project. 

Over 800? How on earth can you find the one stick you need in that pile?!

Now worries, Crane thought of that. There's a new tutorial section explaining the effects of tappet diameter, lobe size, and follower wheel diameter. Primary lobe types are segmented into hydraulic flat tappet, hydraulic rollers, mechanical flat tappet, and mechanical rollers. Each of these basic groups are then separated into unique lobe design families, with design characteristics ranging from long term conservative usage, to aggressive maximum power output.

They even defined application and engine specific series, with overhead camshaft and translating follower sections for the latest powerplants.

The hardest of the hard-core can use these listings and then consult with Crane's technical staff to produce a custom cam grind, designed specifically for his engine and application.

All this info is also available online at CraneCams.com. Use the "Catalog" drop-down menu for convenient referencing. Or click here to download.
