Wagler stage 1 as that’s all I knew about when ordering. I didn’t even know Hamilton had a setup.
You have to look at this link.I don't see any Cummins camshafts on the Wagler website at all.
Is it possible that Wagler is simply selling the Hamilton roller cam?
Yeah they definitely redesigned something. Even the body is more machined near the roller pedestal than before, which increases cost.that whole lifter difference in the build and detail is so odd.
Timing cover and the whole front of the truck isn’t on yet…great work. that is a major job. how does it sound? nice and quiet?
It pissed me off when I looked closer, but by then, I wasn’t going back out to flip it around lol.Your engine oil dipstick is inserted upside down.
Don‘t bullllllyyyyyyyy me; I DO NOT have OCD.

That is a spring loaded scissor gear. It removes lash and eliminates gear train noise.All things being equal, the engine will be louder with solid roller lifters versus the original hydraulic roller lifters!
However since the engine is "lighter" and has a custom ECM tune, I'm sure you won't be able to tell.
@cumminsturbofreak what is the black clip/retainer on the cam gear?
Man I would have been tempted to install head studs at the same time.
However lack of stock and I noticed yesterday that ARP 625+ head studs now retail for US$1600 (CAD$2200). Holy heck...
Probably.Ordered that stage 1 kit myself....did the jessel lifters tho...I'm local to wagler and later this summer I'll have them install them...with the change to the lifters are you @cumminsturbofreak going to run 15-40 oil again or?

Damn, that sounds good!WOW!
So I started it, and, boy is it QUIET! No more ticking above 1500rpm!
And as a bonus, exhaust sounds great with the cam!
