Hi,

I want to use a Comp Cams Blower Mechanical Roller Camshaft Part# 12-704-8 in my sbc 388 cu with a Weiand 177 blower. What do you think about using the beehive springs for this cam part # 26055-16. Thank you in advance for your reply.

Hasso,

The 26055-16 spring should work well for your application. What may seem a little odd at first glance is the seat and open pressures compared to a conventional dual spring. However, this is the benefit of the conical beehive style springs. They require less mass and pressure to achieve valve control. If this was a high rpm Drag Race only application I may lean more towards the conventional dual springs.

Hope this helps.

Jay
