Did some work on the Moebius valve covers:

  • enlarged the spark plug notches
  • created the bolt notch in the end 

J.C., nice improvement on those valve covers. 

Could I ask what technique/tools did you use to enlarge those spark plug notches?

And thanx for sharing that image from the Holman Moody book, I'll have find a copy.

Thanks Kurt.  I used a ball bit turned in a pine vise to enlarge the notches.  I held the bit at angle starting with smaller size and working my way up to the size I wanted.

Now that is ingenious, I was thinking something much more complicated like mounting them in a milling machine.

Another interesting photo.

?format=750w

Here’s a glamour shot of the complete Cammer from the Society of Automotive Engineers paper (SAE 650497) presented by Norm Faustyn and Joe Eastman, Ford’s two lead engineers on the project. All the published technical sources on the Cammer, including an in-depth feature in the January 1965 issue of Hot Rod Magazine, appear to be closely based on the SAE paper.

No "Ford SOHC" logo in this period photo either and an interesting intake system.  Is that (4) Webers mounted perpendicular?

It is indeed.
