I am disillusioned by the lack of "on the shelf" cam grind options for the 152 and 196. There are few good options for the V8. Knowing that IH offered one cam profile for all V8's and 4cyl engines. The timing gears are universal. The cam design and cam bearings are all the same. Combine that with the fact that the 152 and 196 are 1/2 of a V8 and I can see no reason that it would work. Has anyone put the V8 cam in a 152 or 196? I can see no reason why it would not work.
