Solex Cams

I have a pair of Solex cams. They're a re-grind on a pair of T cams I believe. I'm looking to trade for a pair of E or S cams. I'll trade even for E cams or I'll pay up on S cams.

These are great for carburetted motors. Slightly more HP than E cams.

I need some cams I can use with MFI.

Thanks

solex and E are pretty much the same. just the initial timing setting was different.

Hi John,

I know they're close. So are you saying I can use them with an E MFI pump? If that's the case I'll keep them.

I was comparing profiles in the factory books which showed the solex having a duration of 244 deg on intake and the E cam has 229 deg of duration on intake. Also BA's book shows the Solex having a lift of .439 in. and the E cam having a lift of .408 putting the Solex in between the E and S cam in aggressive profiles.

Has anyone tried a Solex cam with a MFI setup?

Even if they were identical profiles, there is no getting around the fact that there isn't an MFI pump drive coming off the Solex cams.

Unless of course the T-cam cores that were used for the Solex re-grind were from a '72 or early '73 T-cam.

That they are, and they're still available.

Well hey, if those Solex cams have a pump drive, then I'm interested. I want to run MFI as well, and need to rebuild my pump anyway.
I've got a set of E-cams if you want to trade straight across.

Oops! The above post is mine, I just used my Boss's computer and forgot to log him out, and log myself in.

E-mail me at theothertyson@hotmail.com

Don't try to e-mail using the Pelican because it has the wrong address registered.
