I am trying to duplicate a 327 engine that I built in the mid 1970's. The motor had a Fireball cam and was installed in a 300 horse engine. I remember how hard the engine pulled, yet it was still streetable. Does anyone have the specs for this cam so I can purchase something similar? Thanks in advance.

Which Fireball? There's been several. From what I gathered, this was one of the more common ones.

286 Fireball
Specs are:
286/292 Adv. Dur.
213/220 @ .050"
.434"/.450" Lift
110 LSA/106 ICL

Crane still sells a lot of their old grinds under different names like the Energizer series. They even have a Fireball II series. But I must say there's HUNDREDS of better grinds available that will give a lot better performance and street manors!!:yes:
But....Here's a couple similar grinds.

Crower #60918
288/298
214/224
.444/.467
112 LSA

and
Summit #1103
272/282
214/224
.442/.465
112 LSA

Note:
The advertised duration numbers have changed over the years because of the different measuring techniques.:yes: That's why the duration numbers @ .050 became a more common number to use for comparisons and performance predictions (rpm range, etc.)..
