i just recently tore down my 383 sbc, and found out that my timing chain had 6 teeth chewed off, wasnt to happy about that, and then found out that my cam had flat spots on the edges of the lobes not where the lifters come in contact (weird). but my lifters look great no nicks or any signs of wear,so what i am doing now is getting a whole new valvetrain plus. im going with jesel shaft mount solid sportsman rockers kss-335050+.100 1.50-1.50, getting a jesel belt drive kbd-31000, and was wondering what cam and lifters i should go with, my vehicle is a 94 silverado that weighs 4500lbs. and is 4 wheel drive mostly street drivin not much offroading, i know why own a 4x4 then ?, want something reliable and either close to the previous cam specs or bigger, jesel recommended their solid lifters ktl-5842760-01 but i dont see myself spending $1200 on lifters, but maybe ill have to, my setup is in my sig. any help much appreciated, mike

All this for a motor that might see 5500 tops?

I hope that gear was the nylon over aluminum to shed 6 teeth.

jesel + street driven = overkill for 999/1000 cases.

I suppose you can never have too good of parts, but I would think the smart money might go a little more moderate on those items and upgrade some other pieces... 800+ dollar rockers seem to be a little much for a street truck but a 900 dollar belt drive even more so...

I am waiting to see your sig, maybe you have one hell of a 383 stuck in this truck...

Ah. Now I get where youre going with this.

I have to ask this- on the cam damage, any chance there is an issue with the wheels on the lifters, or their spindles they spin on, that could have allowed the lifter body to hit the cam lobe?

I have seen one before where the spindle the roller of the lifter bent and allowed the body to hit, which caused scarring along the edges of the lobes...

I wish I had pictures, would tell the story much easier...

i dont think the lifter body was hitting at all like i said there is no damage to the lifters or the rollers on them, i had a guy at morepower take a look at the cam and lifters and he said he hasnt seen anything like that before he thinks the cam might have came from comp like that but i dont ever remember those marks on it, i got 2 seasons on it and everything was still running great before i tore it apart and found those problems.

i know it might be overkill but i want this thing to be reliable, the shaft mount rockers are easier to set, more accurate that standard stud mount and as far as the belt drive a little more accurate and it will help soak up some of the harmonics and keeps them away from the valvetrain, and just looks badass to me, so i still dont know what brand of cam i want to go with or lifters, what do you guys think is a good brand out there, what have you had good luck with, jesel recommended i give cammotion a call, never heard of them

my timing chain was really stretched out and they broke off, as far as any other problems ?, i had my block and rotating assembly looked over at more power and everything was perfect,the bearings had little scratches in them but not deep enough to catch a finger nail on themand he just polished my crank, i have all new bearings in it. all i need is to get a cam, lifters, pushrods rockers, timing setup and a oil pump, i dont really see how there could be other problems when im replacing all the things that had problems?im thinking that the teeth that got broken off some how got ground up into the oil pump(maybe) and fed threw the rest of engine and caused damage to the cam ?

Could it be a faulty timing set from factory or a cheapy? How are you sure the chain is streched did you compare to a new one? If ya wanna spend that coin build a big block. Could excessive vibration cause something like this?

i really dont want to build another motor at this point, i know im not far off from it right now, as far as parts i just want something reliable maybe go with a comp cams belt drive they are half the price as jesel, and definately need new rocker arms instead of those summit brand, and ive heard good and bad about the lifters i have so all im trying to do is see what you guys think i should run for parts and have it reliable.
