i took the heads of my car its a 68 with a 302 2 barrel. i found taht it has solid lifters on it not the hydrolic that the book says it should have come with., this is just a regualr 302. does this mean taht the cam is different as well. i was told taht if a car has a solid lifters then most likely it has a higher performance cam on it. any ideas?

If it has a solid lifters, then it has a solid cam. Are you sure there solids, you cant mix hyd. cam with solid lifters, or vise-versa. It's more then likly a performance cam and all solids that I know of had adjustable rockers, (HI-PO 289, Boss 351,etc.). Need a cam number to be certain.
