New in the box camshaft for a 235 small journal. Melling p/n CCS12 100.00 ships on your dime.

Is this for a splash oiler?

Looks like it is listed by Melling for cars: 1942-1953 216 & 1950-1953 216/235?
The listings do not show it for trucks.

The Master Parts Catalog shows that truck and car 216 cams were the same from 1937-1953.

The Master Parts Catalog shows 1941-1953 car and truck mechanical lifter 235 cams being the same (but, different from the 216 cam).

The Powerglide-equipped cars (50-53) had a different cam (and, they had hydraulic lifters).

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

Thanks.

I'm trying to help a friend find a cam. Here's the deal- He's having a custom grind done by Isky, but the core he/they had to start with is bad, so there'll need to be a good one sourced to move forward. The block is a '46 truck 235, BUT it's been machined for insert bearings in the bottom end. I don't know the status of the cam bearings. I need to find that out before anyone spends too much mental energy on it.

Tim, the 235 cam has flat spots between the lobes to clear the connecting rods, due to the longer stroke on the 235. A small-bearing 235 cam would probably work in a 216, but not the other way around.
