Did you get stronger valve springs with the cam?

Pull your engine, and strip it.
To get at the cam, you have to split the case. I recommend the HTKYSA manual for a good reference.
In short, you are looking at the following.
-Remove valve covers
-Remove intake manifold
-Remove oil pump, water pump, disty
-Remove back cover and oil pan
-Split the case
Youre essentially tearing the motor down as far as it can go.
You will want to put a micrometer on all your bearings, etc ... and replace as necessary.
Also would be a good time to deglaze your cylinders and do new piston rings.

cam is matched for heads and carbs apprantly, some of you know my SUB4 setup, tis a bit different
oh, yeah did forget bout the equal wear, but ive got it lying around and was just gonna whack it in, think its best wait for the forged internals rebuild to put that in, might just regrind it again and max it out
