Default Weber and cam question

What are some of the restrictions regarding cam selection when you use weber carbs? I know they don't like a lot of overlap. How much is okay? How much duration can you get by with? Please use advertised duration unless specified. Thanks for your help.

You are the only person in the world that has the stones to run Webbers, I guess.

I think you need to go with a three two package on that new engine Lumpy is building for you.


Glad you made it home ok!

Do a search here on CC on Webers there is a lot of archived information. And I know someone posted about ideal camshaft duration running Webers. I've looked it over scanning for info because I have a set going on my SB.
