PLEASE study these instructions carefully before installing your new camshaft. If you have any questions or problems, do not hesitate to call our
Technical Hotline at: 1-800-416-8628.
CAMSHAFT: Edelbrock Performer-Plus camshafts are ground specifically for use with the corresponding Performer manifold. The Performer manifold #2166 or #3766, and Performer-Plus camshaft #2167, are designed to work as a team to give you better driveability and performance. They
are dyno-matched and street-proven. For best results, use the Edelbrock manifold/camshaft package with the carburetor and headers we recommend.
NOTE: Maximum performance is achieved when packages are used with a 4-bbl carburetor and headers, however packages may be used with
any of the following equipment:
• manifold/camshaft package only
• aftermarket carburetor specified in instructions and catalog
• 1-3/4" headers
• aftermarket/re-curved distributors
IMPORTANT: This instruction sheet provides general installation guidelines which can affect your warranty. Read it carefully. It is not our intent to
cover each detail of installation here; a step-by-step procedure manual would be far too lengthy. We want to caution you that installing a
camshaft is a complicated procedure that requires a good general knowledge of automotive engines. If you are not confident that you can complete the camshaft installation successfully, we suggest you consider having it installed by an experienced mechanic.
CAUTION: Improper installation will result in LOW MILEAGE, POOR PERFORMANCE, COSTLY RE-INSTALLATION, and ENGINE DAMAGE. TO AVOID
THESE PROBLEMS YOU MUST DO THE FOLLOWING: Carefully study and understand all instructions. Examine the camshaft for possible shipping
damage (if damaged contact you dealer immediately).

VALVE SPRINGS
CAUTION: WARNINGS ABOUT YOUR WARRANTY
In order for this Performer-Plus cam and lifter kit to be covered
under ANY WARRANTY you MUST use the correct Edelbrock Sure
Seat Valve Springs or original equipment springs. Failure to install
new Edelbrock valve springs or original specification springs with
your new Performer-Plus cam could cause the cam lobes to wear
excessively and could cause additional engine damage.
This camshaft is designed to function with Edelbrock Sure Seat
valve springs #5867 (non-rotators) or OE valve springs. Do not use
dual valve springs with this camshaft.
Check and set spring height to factory specifications for your year
and model. If using Edelbrock #5867, set to 1.820". NOTE: Due to
the various settings through the years, we advise checking Mitchell,
Motors, Chilton, or Ford service manuals for correct spring height
setting for your vehicle.
For 1969 & later non-rotator engines, you may want to install
Edelbrock Valve Spring Retainer Kit #9724.
LIFTERS
New lifters must be used with new camshaft. Use only the lifters
supplied with this kit.
Check to be sure that all lifters fit freely in the lifter bores.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Coat cam lobes and bottom of each lifter with MoS2 lube (supplied)
to prevent cam lobe and lifter wear from occurring during initial
start-up.
Install new camshaft with new sprockets, timing chain and lifters.
CAUTION: Use Edelbrock Performer-Plus True Rolling Timing Chain
and Gear Set #7830. Do not use late model timing chain & gear sets
that are designed in a retarded position and are not recommended
for this camshaft installation. Edelbrock Timing Sets feature three
keyways for specific timing selection. Use locking compound material on the bolt threads holding timing gear to cam. Torque to factory
recommendations specified in motor repair manual.
Install camshaft with timing marks lined up as recommended by
factory specifications. See Figure 1.
When using Performer-Plus Timing Chain and Gear Sets (7800
series) with Edelbrock cam and lifter kits, straight up timing alignment is achieved. If any other timing gear set is used, it is necessary to check cam position for correct timing alignment. This
requires indexing the camshaft with a degree wheel to verify timing
alignment. O.E.M. or non-Edelbrock timing gear sets are not recommended for use with Edelbrock camshafts.
INSTALLING PUSHRODS AND ROCKER ARMS
After the cam is installed and timed correctly (see Figure 1), it will
be necessary to check each pushrod for correct lifter pre-load.
VALVE ADJUSTMENT
Turn the engine over until the No. 1 cylinder exhaust lifter starts to
move up. At this point install pushrod and adjusting nut on intake
rocker arm and adjust to zero clearance between rocker arm and
valve tip. For engines equipped with adjustable rocker arms, continue tightening the adjusting nut one-half turn. Check to make sure
that the slot in the rocker arm has clearance at the stud in the full
open and closed positions. If there is no clearance in the closed
position a 0.060" longer pushrod is required. For engines with nonadjustable rocker arms, continue to tighten the adjusting nut until it
bottoms out. If this adjustment is less than one-half turn, you will
need to purchase the 0.060" longer pushrods from your Ford dealer.

Turn the engine over again until the intake lifter just stops coming
down. At this point install pushrod and adjusting nut on exhaust
rocker arm and repeat the same procedure as above.
The above procedure assures correct hydraulic lifter pre-load.
Repeat this procedure for each of the other seven cylinders. For
non-adjustable rockers only, torque rocker arm nuts to
20-25 ft./lbs.
Re-install front cover, fuel pump, water pump, and oil pan using
new gaskets.
Install intake manifold using new intake gasket set and torque manifold bolts to 25 ft./lbs.
Install crankshaft dampener and torque to factory specification.
INSTALLING DISTRIBUTOR AND TIMING ENGINE
NOTE: Before installing your distributor, check the gear drive on the
distributor and oil pump for any signs of wear. If worn, be sure to
replace with new or you may wear out your camshaft prematurely.
This is especially true when rebuilding your engine and a high performance oil system is used, which generates a heavier load on the
camshaft gear system.
Edelbrock camshafts are designed to use OEM-type gears and oil
pumps only.
Turn the engine over in the direction of rotation until the No. 1
intake valve closes and continue until the pointer on the front cover
is approximately 5 degrees BTDC.
Re-install the distributor with the rotor pointing towards No. 1 terminal in the cap, and with the vacuum advance canister in its original
position.
Lightly tighten the hold-down clamp so that the distributor can still
be turned to determine final setting using a timing light with the
engine running.
Replace valve covers, carburetor linkage and remaining vacuum and
electrical connections.
Re-install air conditioner, if so equipped.
Re-install radiator, fan shroud, and belts (if removed), fill radiator
with coolant and re-connect battery.
Double check all connections, fuel lines, etc. before starting engine.
CAMSHAFT/LIFTER RUN-IN
CAUTION: Change the engine oil and filter before start-up and again
after break-in. Do not allow the engine to run under 2000 rpm for
the first 1/2 hour. Vary engine speed between 2000 and 2500 rpm.
Slow idle speeds will result in severe cam and lifter wear. Start the
engine and bring to break-in rpm.
IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS
AFFECTING YOUR WARRANTY
•
CAM LOBE WEAR- Cam lobe wear is almost non-existent unless
mismatched parts are used or installation of the cam and lifters is
done improperly. Most cam damage is caused by the timing gear
coming loose due to improper torque on bolts. Bolts holding gear to
camshaft should be torqued carefully and a locking compound
applied to bolt threads.
•
CAUTION: Use Edelbrock Performer-Plus Timing Chain and Gear Set
#7830. Do not use late model timing chain and gear sets that are
designed for emission-controlled engines. These timing sets are
machined in a retarded position and are not recommended for this
camshaft installation. Edelbrock Timing Sets feature three keyways
for specific timing selection.

CAM GEARS AND CAMSHAFT END PLAY- If cam gear becomes
loose, the cam will slide back in the block, causing the lifters to hit
the lobes next to them and also the cam bearing journals. If the
engine is run after this happens, the bottom of the lifters and the
sides of the lobes will become clipped.
When installing a camshaft, it is always important to check for proper operating clearances, especially when high performance components are used. Things to look for that can cause failure and damaged parts are as follows:
Improper valve-to-piston clearance (this should be no less than
0.080").
Rocker arm stud slot clearance (both ends; valve closed and open).
Proper spring settings (see dimensions with spring instruction
sheet; correct dimensions mean maximum performance and longer
engine life).
SPECIAL INSTRUCTION
With the Edelbrock manifold and camshaft package plus a header
installation, a carburetor jet change may be required for best performance. Due to the varied applications of year and model of vehicles,
no one combination could suffice for all installations. The following
procedure is only a guideline and in many cases, the manufacturing
specifications for recommended carburetors or timing may be best.
VACUUM ADVANCE
For best cruise and light throttle response, a vacuum advance curve
was used with 16° to 20° maximum advance at 14-16 inches of
vacuum and 4° to 10° advance at 10-12 inches of vacuum.
•
CARBURETION AND IGNITION TIMING
Best carburetor results were with the Edelbrock Performer Series
carburetors #1405 (600 cfm with manual choke), #1406 (600 cfm
with electric choke), or #1407 (750 cfm with manual choke).
Engines equipped with Performer 460 (EGR) manifold #3766
should use original equipment carburetor. Stock jetting can be
used for most installations, however, various conditions may
require re-calibration for optimum performance (changes in altitude, temperature, exhaust system , etc.). Ignition timing for this
package may vary with each application. A good starting figure
would be between 14 degrees initial timing at idle with vacuum
advance disconnected. Total advance should not exceed 32
degrees to 34 degrees with initial and centrifugal weights combined and should be at full advance at 3000-3500 rpm. After timing is adjusted, re-connect the vacuum advance line. NOTE: The
best combination for any particular vehicle or application must be
determined by trial and error using the above information as a
guideline.
•
HEADERS
For best performance, headers are recommended with the
Performer package. For this application, they should be 1-3/4"
diameter, approximately 31" long and terminating into a 3" collector. The remainder of the exhaust system should consist of
dual exhaust and tail pipes, at least 2" diameter with low backpressure mufflers.
NOTE: The best combination for any particular vehicle or application must be determined by trial and error using the above information as a guideline.
Use of a straight edge to help
align the two timing marks is
highly recommended
