We can’t imagine too many of you are in the middle of a Ford 427 Single Overhead Cam engine build, but those of you who are will be putting up cheers at this news.
COMP Cams is now producing the hard-to-find Ford stub cam for the potent Ford 427 SOHC engine.
Developed over 90 days in the mid 60’s, banned from NASCAR, and ultimately finding success on the drag strip, the Ford 427 SOHC was one of the most powerful engines of its day. Recent aftermarket developments in blocks and heads have increased interest and availability of these engines that are common in modern period-correct builds. The Ford 427 SOHC utilizes a stub cam, which is used to drive the distributor and oil pump, mount the dual timing chain sprockets and provide oiling to the left head via an oiling groove in the bearing journal. COMP Cams has recently made a stash of these parts available with an option for special engine builder group pricing. COMP also currently offers custom cam grinds for Ford 427 SOHC engines, so this stub cam is a necessary companion piece to part no. 183-000-9L and 183-000-9R camshafts.
