914 Engine Rebuild


Rebuilding a 74 - 2.0 engine, any suggestions on cam replacement. Will a stock regrind work or should I go for a stock grind Web-Cam?

Also what type of break in motor oil is best?

Stock grind Web-cam, or possibly a Raby cam. Make sure you get the lifters from the same place you get the cam from; incompatibilities will each the lobes and the lifter faces.

Brad Penn racing oil is supposed to be Good Stuff, for break-in and for regular use. GM sells a ZDDP-rich oil supplement as a "break in oil treatment", I think. That sounds like it is a decent alternative.

The above is all from reading, though, not from first hand experience.

I've put over 100K on my web-cam and matching lifters. I rebuilt the engine a few monthsago and the cam and lifters showed no wear at all. I put 'em back in for at least another 50K. The car has a little over 300 now, and I've been using Bradd Penn for the last three years or so. Started not long after the EPA-driven SAE ratings and formula changes. Its good stuff too.
