Note: Be sure to use camshaft break-in paste and motor oil that have adequate amounts of zinc dialkyl dithio phosphate, commonly called ZDP and/or ZDDP, to protect your camshaft lobes and followers. Insufficient amounts of ZDDP can cause camshaft failure on older engines. Mainstream oils in the USA do not have enough ZDDP for classic flat tappet engines. For detailed information about ZDDP in relation to camshaft wear, please review the Tech Briefs in the ZDDPlus website: http://www.zddplus.com/
