With the recent discussion surrounding rebuilds and initial
startup, I have a related question. In a few weeks, I'll be
starting the rebuild in my MGB for the first time, and while
I understand the importance of breaking in a new cam to new
lifters, how about an original cam and new lifters??
Before I am chastised for doing this, I had the cam checked
by a machinist I trust, had new bearings pressed in and
fitted to the cam, and all lobes and lifter faces were smeared
with gooey Crane cam-lube during assembly.
My father always taught me that it was foolish to use a
new cam and old lifters, but it was fine to use the reverse.
What I am wondering is do the same break in rules apply??
