Frequently Asked Questions:
The below questions are some of the most common we receive here at AFM. Please give us a call or send us an email if you have further questions.
1) How do I degree my AFM Cam?
Degreeing your camshaft for SBF. The below card will reference how to degree your AFM SBF camshaft.
Degreeing your AFM cam will allow your engine to gain the most potential horsepower. Be sure to use a proper degree wheel kit.
2) What distributor gear should I run with my AFM SBF camshaft?
We recommend running Steel gears on all of our SBF camshafts.
3) Do I need to "break in" my camshaft after installation?
For cam swaps on used engines no, there is no specific break in procedure needed since our camshafts are Hydraulic Roller. If the cam is being used on a brand new engine build then use the engine builders recommended engine break in procedure.
4) Does AFM assist with PMS systems still?
The PMS system is no longer supported as of 2017. Click the link here for PMS tips and information.
5) I received a website error when placing an order online?
If you receive an error when trying to process an order on the website this means the fraud filters have most likely caught something in the transaction. It can be as simple as the billing and shipping addresses do not match, address information or name entered incorrectly, or credit card number was entered in incorrectly. DO NOT HIT THE BACK BUTTON OR TRY AND PLACE THE ORDER AGAIN. Each time you try and place the order with an error you credit/debit card will be charged a pre-authorization. This is to confirm the credit card number entered was valid. We do not pull the funds, however they are put on a temporary hold and are usually released within 3-5 business days depending on your financial institution. We do not hold the funds on our end and cannot "release" funds as it is a declined transaction. Please call customer service if you receive an error on the website while placing an order.
6) Does Anderson Ford Motorsport still have a Tech Department?
We do our best to assist our customers in making the right decision for there build. AFM has offered many products over the years with some still being readily available. Service and tech may not be available to service some of the products that are no longer available (ex. PMS system). While we do not have an official tech department anymore, we have plenty of experience still with current available products along with current AFM products available on our website.
7) Can I have AFM make me a custom grind camshaft for my application?
Due to the popularity of our current camshaft offerings we cannot offer grinds other than what is offered in our current catalog. We offer a good amount of different options that work in a lot of different combinations. Please give us a call to review our camshaft options that will work for your setup.
8) If the website states "ship from the manufacturer" is the item in stock?
Due to manufacturing delays we can no longer guarantee "in stock" status for items drop shipped directly from the manufacturer. If you wish to purchase an item that does ship directly from one of our vendors and want to know the availability, please call or send us an email. We still allow you to purchase and place an order online for these items which guarantees your spot in line to recieve the item once they are available.
