I pulled my cam out of my 94 E-7 and mailed it yesterday to Camcraft. They are in SC. I talked to Charles and he said $250 to regrind my cam and weld 1 lobe. Also $13 to resurface each lifter. One of my lifters lost the hard-facing which is welded to the lifter. Really not lost because I found it in the oil pan. I priced out a new cam and lifters which came to $2,100 plus $99 a core for each lifter that is no good. Big savings. Shipping was $40 one way. I have to buy one new lifter which is $126 plus a core of $99. WOW!!!!!!!! Charles has about 250 mack cams waiting to get reground. 2 days shipping. 1 day to regrind and 2 days return shipping. If you can wait, this is the way to go. He needs the part number because he has some cams in stock.

Live every day like it's your last, because one of these days, it will be.

found out that same exact thing when my cam went, macks issue with welding the carbide to the lifter and with the price factor. i think my cam would have been 900-1100 $$$$ and a set of lifters would cost 1600$$ through mack, got them after market for 1200$$. Charels told me all the same things about what he does. all my pieces of the lifter were all in the pan in very small pieces along with half the lobe. that was quite a learning exp. for me at that time, its called got yaa. i am glad that there is a place like cam craft out there to help with these problems.. did you do your cam inframe or out. my problem was holding the lifters in place when i slid the new cam in, did it with magnets and grease.

I did mine in the truck. I used lubriplate grease, very thick. Worked just fine. A little tough getting up inside, just had to keep turning the crank to get room. I tried to borrow the magnets from my locale mack dealer but they were using them, go figure.

IF it went like mine , you must have been absolutly filthy when you were done, i was. that engine oil in those macks make everything black.

Oh yah!!!!!, I had more oil on me than the oil pan did. The best thing to do is remove the pan and let sit a week to let all the oil drip off.

did that, still covered

Dont know if the e7 or like the e6 but on those you can take a gas welding rod or coat hanger and bend the end into a shallow S shape drive them in the hole in the center of the lifter and tie them with big rubber bands to top of the head. that way you dont have to pull the side plates or the pump
