what cam did you end up with?
I have not changed the cam that came in the RV head from engbldr - the 261C.
I have a what sounds like a deep tick or light knock that I'm concerned about. Using my stethoscope and probe, I can hear a deep tick on the rocker cover and top of head when probing. I don't think that the rockers are making the noise. The sound is like 1 or 2 cylinder cycles - not like even sounding rocker tick. I think its sounds deeper, maybe a valve. I don't think the noise is normal. I don't know where it's coming from. I need to isolate the noise. When I get the leaks (input shaft, rear diff, and steering box) fixed and the AC recharged, I plan to drive to Lake Havasu and visit the boys at LCE.
My thought was to simply change the camshaft to see if has anything to do with the noise, because it should be an easy swap without moving the head, right?
At this point, and at 200+ miles on the break-in, I'm very disappointed and frustrated.
If I could turn back time, I would swap in an GM LS 5.3L engine, for less than the $5000+ I now have invested in the 22RE!
