    hey guys, while redoing my non-operational 427 stroker(in the shop being balanced) I decided to pull the cam. It gets confusing from there, The motor is (just to get you alll caught up) 66 427 with a 428 crank. Thats why im having it balanced. i pulled the cam and the markings are Pearson X-1800. i have never heard of Pearson, could it be Earson? if so i cant find anthing on the net and i cant find anthing on Earson X1800. can any of you oldschoolers help an fellow late-bloomer oldschooler?
    thanks in advance.

    Dom,thanks. That will come in handy. I've got some stray ford cams from that era that I can now identify.But the one I want to use was already in this motor. I should have given more info... It i believe it is a solid roller cam cause the lifters are roller, am not sure if they are solid or hydraulic yet, ill have to take a second look. If it is a 66 block, it could be either. I know the cam is aftermarket cause it is marked "Pearson". Ive never heard of pearson,but I have heard of Earson. See the spelling difference? That is whats got me confused.

    I searched David Pearson who was a Nascar racer and a damned good one.
    I came up with a Crane cams site but couldn't find that number.

    A little off topic, but you're telling me you made a 454 Ford? That's awesome!
