Chrysler 318 reverse rotation roller camshaft

Postby mgoblue9798 » Tue Jul 24, 2018 10:54 pm

Anyone know if there is a vendor that makes a reverse rotation ROLLER cam? I would like to build a couple Magnum boat engines using the better heads and roller camshafts. I have seen reverse rotation magnum marine reman engines advertised and wonder if they use a roller cam or flat tappet. Thanks in advance.

Good luck! You might consider, instead, locating a trans that reverses the output shaft. If so, that would eliminate all kinds of RR problems for you.

ZF Hurth transmissions, which most models are full reversing, usually have the same bolt pattern as a velvet drive. I think the 63A model would be the one you would need. Then you could build your magnums both standard rotation and use the tranny's for the opposite rotation.
