    Default Need cam advice, 1914 type 1 with T3 automatic in trike

    Hi all

    I'm looking to figure out best cam to go with a full automatic transmission in my trike build*

    Building a 1914*

    Case is getting machined*

    I bought >>>>>>*

    69mm CW crank 8 pin and balanced*

    I beam rods. 5.4"

    40x35.5. HP stage 1 port polished heads with dual springs , stainless valve*

    Now i'm going order*

    1914. 94x69mm Forged JE pistons with liners*

    Looking at dual 40mm IDE carbs " Weber copies" ????

    Looking for new rockers also ???*

    What cam you all think go good with my auto trans and my combo ??*

    I like drive like an old man mostly but do like to get on it and enjoy some power*

    I keep looking and reading forums.s but not much on autos*

    So far I'm thinking on maybe engle W110*

    Please any and all advise helpful*

    Thanks RogiluC17if-417037814(1).jpg

    Welcome aboard.

    There is a lot of knowledgeable people here and I sure someone else will chime in

    When I built my VW Trike engine I frequented The Samba web site. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewforum.php?f=46

    This site is geared toward VWs (not just trikes)
    Thank you

    I would not run anything too radical with an automatic. You need it to pull down lower than a standard shift.

    Opinion.....upper limit. Web 86 and 1.25/1.3 ratio rockers. Next possibly a web 218.

    An engle 110 is a very old design cam. An oldie but a goody, but just not up to par with other newer choices.

    But you may not want to take my option on it......well because I like big cams.

    You could do handily well with an eagle 2280 cheater cam and be perfectly happy.

    But you did get a pretty good amount of head for it.
