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 #2181 or #3781, and Performer-Plus camshaft #2182, 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
• 1-5/8" 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 #5882 (standard) or #5982 (for valve 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 #5882, set to 1.780"; for #5982, set
exhausts to 1.600". 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 non-rotator engines, you may want to install Edelbrock Valve
Spring Retainer Kit #9724 and Valve Stem Locks #9611.
NOTE: #9611 fit single groove valve stems only; not for use with
multi-groove valves.
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 startup.
Install new camshaft with new sprockets, timing chain and lifters.
CAUTION: Use Edelbrock Performer-Plus True Rolling Timing Chain
and Gear Set #7811 (1973-95) or #7820 (1965–72-1/2).
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 TIMING
with adjustable rocker MARKS
arms,
continue
tightening the adjusting
nut one-half (1/2) turn.
Check to make sure that
the slot in the rocker arm Figure 1has clearance at the stud Timing Chain Sprocket Alignment
in the full open and Use of a straight edge to help
closed positions. If there align the two timing marks is
is no clearance in the highly recommended
closed position a 0.060"
longer
pushrod
is
required. For engines with non-adjustable 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 nonadjustable 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 2500 rpm for the
first 1/2 hour. Vary engine speed between 2500 and 3000 rpm. Slow
idle speeds will result in severe cam and lifter wear. Start the engine
and bring to break-in rpm.
•
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.
•
CARBURETION AND IGNITION TIMING
Best carburetor results were with the Edelbrock Performer Series
carburetors #1405 (600 cfm with manual choke) or #1406 (600 cfm
with electric choke). Engines equipped with Performer 351-W (EGR)
manifold #3781 should use OEM 4V carburetor only. 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 10
to 14 degrees initial timing at idle with vacuum advance
disconnected. Total advance should not exceed 34 degrees to 38
degrees with initial and centrifugal weights combined and should be
at full advance at 3000 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.
•
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.
•
HEADERS
For best performance, headers are recommended with the Performer
package. For this application, they should be 1-5/8" 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 back-pressure mufflers such
as the Edelbrock RPM Series stainless steel 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.
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
#7811 or #7820. 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).
