WOW, I had no idea Crane Cams was going out of business!!

For those of you old enough to remember, they were one of the premier cam manufacturers.

www.elgincams.com will design and regrind your cams for ~$400 a pair.

You give him your engine's specs and your desired characteristics.

Caution - you'll have to ask him what happens with solid lifters... when regrinding he reduces the cam's base circle.
