Best Tips for Breaking in a New Camshaft
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- The
first few minutes of operation will determine the long-term survival of
your flat-tappet camshaft. More agressive lobe designs, stronger
valvesprings and changes to the additives in modern motor oils makes a
"wiped" cam lobe much more likely than in the days of classic muscle cars.
These are a few very important tips for properly breaking in your high
performance flat tappet camshaft.

COMP Cams® Technology Explained: Cam Timing
The camshaft is often referred to as the "heart" or the "brain" of a
performance engine. This is due to the dramatic effect that valve timing
events have on a four-stroke internal combustion engine. This Technology
Explained video shows users the effect of each valve event, and how to
tailor those events to the requirements of their specific engine
application. Important cam timing terms such as Intake Opening, Intake
Closing, Exhaust Opening, Exhaust Closing and Overlap are covered as well.

How to Adjust Your Valves Honda Civic
In this video I show how to adjust your valves to bring the lash
measurements back into specification. This procedure will work with any
Honda using a D16 engine.

How an engine works - comprehensive tutorial animation featuring Toyota engine technologies
Animation I created for Toyota that gives an overview of the components of
an engine, how an engine works and some of Toyota's valve, intake and Exhaust technologies. I wrote, directed
and storyboarded the video. It was for training purposes only.

Variable CAM timing is a concept that entails changing the camshaft timing,
as needed, depending on engine LOAD demands. This technology was impossible
just a few years ago, due to the state of the art electronics needed. The
latest Variable CAM Timing (VCT) systems are infinitely variable, meaning
they have no specified settings. CAM timing can be changed or varied
instantaneously across the whole range (ie. Plus or Minus 30 degrees from
normal). By varying the CAM timing, the ECM can regulate the power curve to
meet its own needs. On any gasoline engine, each RPM setting has an optimum
CAM timing setting, depending on load. Up until a few years ago engines
were set whatever the CAM lobes were machined at. With modern VCT, this
relationship can be varied, also varying the engine's power curve. Most
modern VCT systems do not control valve lift, but do great by simply
changing open and close timing points during engine operation. See how it
works here, with this superbly animated training video on automotive
technology and variable cam timing (VCT).

Timing Gears & Marks (Part 1) - An introduction
In this video we will introduce the method of how to align your crank and
cam without the aid of timing marks on the gears. As more and more
manufacturers are consolidating their manufacturing compromises are being
made in the products they supply. One of those compromises is removing
timing marks for gears.
Camshafts (Part 1) - Stock versus Performance Camshafts
Everywhere you look someone is trying to tell you that the stock part is no
good and you need this "performance" part. In this video we give you the
basics behind camshafts and go inside the numbers so you know what
questions you should be asking.
