Re: 430 valve lash specs solids

this is a 1960 stock chris craft ,the cam manufacture was lincoln it has gear to gear drive no timing chain, it has never been touched unless possibly by chris craft this was a one owner boat. restoring so did not want to change ,had the cam reground ,so they should know what they ground it to.
