While original Max Wedges used solid flat-tappet camshafts, we chose an Isky 292 Mega hydraulic flat tappet (installed straight up at 106 degrees) with a JP Performance double-roller billet timing set. Why the juice cam? Because the passenger-side Max Wedge exhaust manifold prevents in-car valve cover removal for lash adjustment. A solid cam would also force the replacement of our dirt-cheap, stock, stamped-steel rocker arms with pricey adjustable models. Safety wire and thread-locking compound keep it all in place.
