Performance cam or stock cam on rebuilt engine
« on: Mar 29, 2016, 08:28:30 PM »
I just bought a 4runner with a 22re  engine from an aftermarket toyota company up-north. The previous owner ordered it with a 260 cam and bored 020. Anyway when he installed it the first thing he noticed is that it leaked antifreeze between the head and  the block. When he tried to contact the company they refused to answer the phone or deal with him and he eventually had to pay for a new head gasket and never got a refund or anything from the company and they eventually would only hang up on him. After all of the lies the company told him he is not sure if they gave him a 260 or just a stock cam. OK all that story to  ask if their is a way to tell if the engine has a stock cam or not with out pulling the cam out.
What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point, in your rambling incoherent response, were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

If the cam is factory it should have a flat casting mark between lobes one and two or the toyota ''teq'' symbol between lobes three and four. You can see these marks with just the valve cover off, you may need to rotate the engine by hand to get the cam in the right position.

Yeah, I am a little nervous about it. The guy I bought the runner from said he hasnt had a problem after changing the head gasket. I think I may start saving up for a 3rz.

You can still have a "stock" cam profile without it being a stock Toyota cam.  I guess you could mic the lobes as there are stock lob specs in the Haynes manual.  Lob diameter will tell you nothing about lift but if it's larger than it supposed to be it probably the 260, if it's close to stock it probably stock profile.

I am running one of the "stock" aftermarket cams on my 22r.  It doesn't have much legs but the bottom end is really good.  Just drove it 2,000 miles over 4 passes and it pulled them all at 50-55 mph in 3rd or 4th gear with 35" tires and all loaded down with  the family and food, luggage, etc.
I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth.

he bought a complete engine or he bought a cam and put it in his engine and then had coolant leak??

even if an engine has never been fired you can have issues installing a cam without a new headgasket.
