Comp Cams makes achieving perfect lobe-to-lifter alignment easy with their center marking tool, which reduces the possibility of failure when installing a flat-tappet camshaft. The tool set fits nearly all GM lifter bore diameters and with lightweight, precision CNC-machined aluminum construction, will not harm the cam. A common 1/4-20 threaded fit on top of the tool allows bolts to be screwed in place for easy removal out of deep lifter bores.

This easy-to-use tool set allows for quick and effortless measurements. Simply mark the cam lobe with a marking fluid, install the cam, and then place the tool in the lifter bore. Next, turn the cam over to mark a line around the cam lobe, and then remove the cam. Simply measure the distance from the edge of the lobe and change shims to achieve the correct lobe to lifter alignment.

The mounts feature durable polyurethane bushings and maintain correct engine position and drivetrain angle. They are available in either satin or polished finishes.
