    Ok good! That was the process I figured would work. Total height minus base circle. Just concerned with the lift. I'm guessing it is moderate duration on a 114 by the way it ran.

    Drop the crank back in with the rear and front main bearings, number 1 piston and rod, cam and timing chain. Add degree wheel and presto. How long would that take?

    Very true...and to further illustrate my laziness, the crank is still in it... I was just more curious than anything. The cam worked so well that I never believed it was stock.

    Looks like intake lift is .431 ish, and exhaust is .4875 ish.

    Nothing spectacular, but good with the stock crate motor

    I don't like the word 'lazy'.i prefer 'motivationally challenged'.

    Laziness is the mother of invention.

    Speaking of stock and non-stock small block street "crate motor" cams, as far as I can remember the best hydraulic flat tappet was the Chevy 3863151. Don't remember the specs and I'm motivationally challenged to research them, but it was a great cam.

    When it comes to motivation, my favourite line is "the early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese".
    I think someone here has that as a signature.
