Cam kits

Does anyone sell a cam kit such as the Crower cam with all the stuff needed to go with it?
I found an Isky kit offered but would like to go with the Crower cam.

Get a 4.2 or a 4.6 instead! They are going cheap right now.

What do you mean, all the stuff you need? You need a cam and new lifters and the gaskets to put it in.

A kit like this.

I am just wondering if anyone else sells something similar except with the Crower #50277?

You don't need most of that.

Thanks to all the info. I think I have it figured out between the info here and some help from PT I think I can start going at it.

I am not as i am not looking. The last time i was it was a few years back and i remember rovers down south for example selling brand new short blocks on a pallet going for less than $1200- i think it was at the time.

I am sure if your are resourceful you will be able to find a good deal on a 4.2 or a 4.6

Good luck man.

Is there something unclear about the idea that if you don't know what you are talking about you don't open your damned mouth? You cause more problems than you solve.

This is strike 4 and 5, so now he's extra double-dog banned.

4.6 short blocks used with <100k are selling for <$1500 and complete take out motors are under 2k (iirc there is one for 1800 here or on dweb), but you would still need a new cam. I imagine one could score a running 4.2 for under $1000 (probably with the rusty LWB still attached).

The suppy of cheap new motors is gone though.

Okay I have bought a tone of stuff today, cam, lifters, water pump, gasket sets.

Can I use my old push rods? The motor had about 82k on it.

What about timing chain and gears? I heard Edelbrock has one for a rover, Cloyes? Whats the consensus?

I bought a cloyes IIRC it was about $35. Used push rods should be fine if they are not worn.

All this is going on a Edelbrock carburated engine not EFI, I don't know if it that makes a difference or not, I wouldn't think it should.
