Getting ready to order engine rebuild kit. Has anybody had experience with the master rebuild kit from Kanter. It seems like a fairly comprehensive kit considering I need almost everything including camshaft, valves, valve guides, valve springs and rocker arms. I was just wondering if anyone had any issues with the quality of the parts, or if there was a better way to go. I was also curious to know if anyone has used their performance upgrade camshaft. I will be using a 750 c.f.m. Edelbrock carb and the car has dual exhaust.so I thought I might pick up a little extra performance using that cam over the stock unit. Also will this cam work well with the stock rebuilt valve train components. It is hard to tell since Kanter doesn't give the cam specs in the add. Any and all information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Dave.

We only need the 400 hp unit for our cars. The 600 has timing control but it can't be used with petronix ignition. The 400 hundred also has an a/c input that can be used to set a different idle and control electric fans if I remember correctly.

If I was doing a full rebuild I would buy the full kit from EGGE as I have heard that these kits are very good. Kanter do also have good kits. I would not buy an Edelbroke or any other carburetor for that matter. I would send my money to FiTech

I sourced all parts from Terrill Machine in Texas, Feltz Terrill, owner. He is very knowledgeable about Cadillac engines and parts and other supply houses buy from him. His ad and price list is in Hemmings. Another thing I like about him is when you call, he picks up the phone, responds to orders promptly and is a first class gentleman.

Has used the Kanter engine rebuild kit himself and has a complete write up on here about just that
He used the higher performance cam and the 750 Edelbrock so you are in good hands regarding that info

Enjoy
