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: 800-416-8628.
CAMSHAFT: Edelbrock Performer RPM camshafts are
ground specifically for use with the corresponding Performer
RPM manifold. The Performer RPM manifold #7166, and
Performer RPM camshaft #7167, 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. The Performer RPM camshafts are
designed for use with modified or high performance cylinder
heads and valve train components only. Screw-in studs and
H.P. adjustable rocker arms must be used.
NOTE: Maximum performance is achieved only when the
Edelbrock Performer RPM Power Package components are
used with the following equipment:
• Performer RPM manifold/camshaft/timing set/valve springs
• Performer Series carburetor #1407 (750 cfm)
• fuel delivery system of sufficient capacity
• 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
REINSTALLATION, and ENGINE DAMAGE.
•
TO AVOID ANY PROBLEMS DO THE FOLLOWING:
Carefully study and understand all instructions. Examine the
camshaft for possible shipping damage (if damaged contact
your dealer immediately).

11. Remove crankshaft pulley and, using a suitable puller, crankshaft dampener.
12. Loosen oil pan and remove front cover.
NOTE: The front cover oil seal should be replaced before the
front cover is re-installed.
13. Rotate engine until timing marks are aligned as shown in
Figure 1.
14. Remove cam sprocket bolt, washer, and fuel pump eccentric.
Slide sprocket and timing chain forward to remove.
15. Remove thrust plate and camshaft. Using appropriate gear
puller, remove crank sprocket.
• LIFTERS
1. New lifters must be used with new camshaft. Use only the
high rev lifters supplied with this kit.
2. Check to be sure that all lifters fit freely in the lifter bores and
that the factory did not install oversized lifters in your block
to compensate for machining errors.
• VALVE SPRINGS
CAUTION: WARNINGS ABOUT YOUR WARRANTY
• INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
3. The above procedure assures correct hydraulic lifter pre-load.
Repeat this procedure for each of the other seven cylinders.
4. Re-install front cover, fuel pump, water pump, and oil pan
using new gaskets.
5. Install intake manifold using new intake gasket set and torque
manifold bolts to 25 ft./lbs.
6. Install crankshaft dampener and torque to factory specification.
• INSTALLING DISTRIBUTOR AND TIMING ENGINE
1. Coat cam lobes and bottoms of each lifter with MoS2 lube
(supplied) to prevent cam lobe and lifter wear from occurring
during initial start-up.
2. Install new camshaft with new sprockets, timing chain and
lifters. CAUTION: Use Edelbrock Performer-Link 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
(7830 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
High performance pushrods and rocker arms and studs are
recommended for this installation. 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
1. Turn the engine over until the No. 1 cylinder exhaust lifter
starts to move up. At this point install adjusting nut on intake
rocker arm and adjust to zero clearance between rocker arm
and valve tip. From this point turn adjusting nut down (clockwise) 1/4 turn more for final adjustment.
2. Turn the engine over again until the intake lifter just stops
coming down. At this point install adjusting nut on exhaust
rocker arm and adjust to zero clearance between rocker arm
and valve tip. From this point turn adjusting nut down (clockwise) 1/4 turn more for final adjustment.
In order for this Performer RPM cam and lifter kit to be covered under ANY WARRANTY you MUST use the correct
Edelbrock Sure Seat Valve Springs. Failure to install new
Edelbrock valve springs with your new Performer RPM cam
could cause the cam lobes to wear excessively and could
cause additional engine damage.
1. This camshaft is designed to function with Edelbrock Sure
Seat valve springs #5767. Do not use other dual valve springs
which may have excessive pressure with this camshaft. Valve
Spring Retainers #9724 may be used if your stock retainers
give insufficient installed valve spring height. Do not use rotator type valve springs or retainers for this application.

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-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 the initial 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 may result in
severe cam and lifter wear.
1. Start the engine and bring to break-in rpm.

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 bolt.
Bolts holding gear to camshaft should be torqued carefully and
a locking compound applied to threads of bolts.
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.
• IGNITION TIMING
Ignition timing for this package may vary with each application.
A good starting figure would be between 10 degrees to 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. For this application, they should be 1-3/4" diameter, approximately 31" long
and terminating into a 3" or 3-1/2" collector. The remainder of the
exhaust system should consist of dual exhaust and tail pipes, at least
2" diameter with low back-pressure mufflers.
• WARNING
In order for this Performer RPM cam and lifter kit to be covered
under ANY WARRANTY you MUST use the correct Edelbrock
Sure Seat Valve Springs. The end flap or label from your Sure
Seat Valve Spring box must be sent in with your camshaft warranty card.
Failure to install new Edelbrock Sure Seat Valve Springs with
your new Performer RPM cam and lifter kit could cause the cam
lobes to wear excessively and could cause additional engine
damage. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS
APPLICATION, PLEASE CONTACT OUR TECHNICAL
DEPARTMENT IMMEDIATELY.
