Degree wheel for Cummins.

I will be needing one shortly for setting up the cam in the new motor. If someone sells them or has a link I'd appreciate it.

Honest...before, it was taking up every bit of my 22" monitor

But now, it's small. Looks good too!

Oh me to, it's been years since I did even a gasser. It's not as hard as most people think. I had no choice, Greg wouldn't sell me the cam if I didn't degree it. He helped me a lot.

Read the instructions, then read them again. Always double check your numbers. With all the problems I've seen lately people need to do this.

Just curious if the numbers that came with the cam were lost I use the degree wheel to find the right spot? I don't have to send it to the company that made it cause I have been told I need to.

It looks like an 11" wheel will be about .096" per degree and an 18" wheel would be .156 per degree. Either size would show 1/2 of a degree accuracy. Are there holes in the balancer that it could be mounted to?

If they will tell you what degree the cam should be installed at why would they want it back? Centerline and valve to piston clearance is what you need to look for when you install it.

I had to make or modify a hole in the wheel to attach it to the balancer. The degree wheel had three holes and the balancer has four. It came with a couple bushings for the center hole. Just make sure it doesn't slip. Either one should work.

So this is how anyone can degree any cam if they do not have a cam card? Does every cam company use the centerline measurement on the cam card? Reason I am asking is that the Cam that is in Lynn's 2wd puller has a used Haisley cam that I think we were told came out of the Detroked truck a few years ago and we do not have a cam card to go by. Thanks for any help.

This will give you the center line number. Most manufacturers will give you the center line they recommend the cam to be installed at. Advancing the cam will increase bottom end. Retarding will increase top end. Without knowing where to start you need to check valve to piston clearance.
