Sifton Racing Cams for Street and Strip
EVO and late model Shovelhead
Including Black Widow Grinds
Our Sifton Racing Cams are of "orginal-orgin" and not to be confused with the Sifton Motorcycle Products Inc. company,
See Photo gallery.









Tom Sifton Checked all his mechanical lifter cams for over head valve engines @ .053 due too the long high ramp that he incorporated into his designs for the Aluminum cylinder head that when hot has growth. Thus allowing the valve to be slowly put on the seat with out shock or being noisy.
 Due to variations in compression ratios and carbon build up, Ing. timing Early Alum heads can grow as much or more as .025"  and will have more mechanical noise when using a Hydraulic Grind cams instead of cams designed for a Solid lifter.
NOTE: Loss of low end power will result if you use Hyd lifter on a mechanical lifter cam do to the extra duration of the ramp zone!!
Early Flat Head cams were checked at .010" some @.004"
This page is under construction-Please call or fill out form.
More on how to hop up Shovelheads coming soon From original factory race dept. notes.
Early Pan Head cam for using two front cyl heads or for F & R Swap
for Turbo
well maybe.

SRC-111-118 Alt style engine only
All out performance only
Camshaft timing information measured @ .053
Cam shaft and cylinder head is design toward more drag strip application
Semi-Bathtub Branch style Chamber 1.650"exh valve with 2.050" int valve both 5/16 stems
Re-Located spark plug hole
Trock 3.8125 bore only    long  rods   higher than stock rocker arm ratio 1.6
Super "B" carb bored out 1/16"
 intermediate adjustable air bleed as well as adjustable main air bleed w/ a 3rd fuel delivery system

This Cam also works well in Harmon big 130+inch engine with Twin carburetor full Hemi cylinder heads
along with Baisley hi-ratio 1.6 rocker arms for .642" valve lift cold .620" hot
Harmon valve sizes are 2.250 int. 1.940 Exh Thin stem .3125

To figure new valve length or new stem protrusion= as a example
( IF .106" is height for stock cylinder head using FL gauge  above 90 degrees @ rocker arm to make a .420 lift geometry + 1/2 of new valve lift increase lets say from .420" to .625"=.205"/2=.102----.102 added to.106"=.208"  using FL gauge-most of us made our own protrusion gauges for high lift cams. Use for all cylinder heads with higher than stock valve lift to correct geometry at mid lift.

SUPER V twin Cam regrinding service for the super V which incorporated
a cam similar to small block Chevy more TQ & HP HYD Lifter design
Engine rebuilding service for this rare engine. Originally did a few engines in1987 using
Bill Miller Aluminum connecting rods, forged TRW piston with compression, rebalanced crank, Hard nickel valve seat and tried reground performance cams
