Reinstalling cam HELP!!!!!!

I am look to see if it is possible to install the cam without the specialized alignment tool or am I going have to use one to install it. I have not removed the cam or crank yet and I know not to remove the adapter from the crank so you dont have to say it. help please thanks.. also on the note of re-installing a cam what is the opinion of going with a performance cam?

Great question if your doing heads that would be the time to do it.
Done it on a couple of gas engines with performace, not sure on Diesels.
You don't hear much about changing cams on Diesels.

The cam comes out of the back of the engine. Yes you can do it without the tool if you are carefull. You are not supposed to remove the "crank ring" but it has been done without adverse effects.

Well that makes it a lot harder to do.
Thats why we don't hear much about cam changes.

Yah I knew it came out the back, and you have to remove the crank first. I'm just looking to see if any one has done it and has any tips or tricks.

Going with a performance cam requires some additional parts. In the end adding $1500 to a head stud job is hard to swallow. Now get some real numbers on a street driven daily truck and you will get some attention.
