I guess it depends who you asked and how the motor is set up,ie oil pump, bearing clearance, cap. of oil pan ect. On my friends 429Scj, he put in push rods with smalller holes, for excessive top end oil problems, but that was just one combination, and may not apply to all.

Anything rollerized doesn't 'require' as much oil supply because the isn't as much contact area that needs to be lubed. Hence the supply can be restricted allowing the oil supply to be better utilized else where. BBF's don't have an inherent problem with oil drain back in the top end so restricting the supply isn't necessarily for that reason. BB Oldsmibiles are are a whole different animal.

Hi 'ya Roy! I humbly apologize for not calling you but this summer has been one of those. The boat seems to be running pretty good although either the clearances need to be tightened up in the jet or I've got toooooo much horsepower....(is that even possible???? lolol) You can hear it bumping the 6,100 chip that I have in there in the vid on the hit. I might need to jet the primary side of the 750's a tad richer but otherwise than that it's running good. I have only had a chance to take it out twice though . Anywho, I still have to get that converter packaged up if you still want it...?
I'm thinking that I'm interested in that hydraulic roller for my motor home too....... EVERYBODY needs a motor home with a lumpy idle don't they?? lolol

cam

I ran that same cam in one of my street cars, it was .030 454 with .250 dome piston and open chambers (119 cc's) about 9.5 to 1 compression and a 850 DP holley and it was not loapy, It almost sounded like a boat but made gobs of power, man the tq and hp off the hit was crazy and pulled all the way to 6400, thats why I ordered a second cam for another build but anyway I'm making small strives on the bird still have head issues but what ever, I'll get it soon I hope, I guess all came through to you ok? and yes I will take it (converter) I'm already collecting parts for a 460 build, got pistons and rods and a custom oil pan buy (rcasonbbf) thanks for the oil pan, I'm thinging about a big solid roller mine are mild (I have 2) they are less than .700 lift and I'm thinking like 740 to 760 lift and maybe the heads you have, get the one repaired, anyway let me know, later dude
