    I can honestly say I never thought I'd see the day when Crane wasn't grinding camshafts anymore.

    Say day.

    A damn shame, I've always had good luck with their stuff.

    I was thinking about ordering one of their cams for a 460 I am putting together for my '78, but I think I better order one from a different company, any suggestions?

    That's too bad. They had some good products.

    There may still be a good supply left around.

    I had the blue racer cam and lifter set in my Windsor powered Ranger and it was hot to trot.

    The Lunatis are pretty good.

    I'd always had the best luck with their stuff. But I guess they just didn't deserve the old Obomination Bailout. Maybe the Pres doesn't like anything other than the limos...

    I wonder if they would be interested in building a cam for the 6.9 or 7.3 idi motors.....:sly I would pay as much as $300.00 for a cam that will add 150 hp to my current build....:sly:D
