The black mamba jr is a torque / mid range cam. If you shooting for 20HP, then you don't want a torque cam. 20HP is pretty significant, so you don't want any cam that says "JR". You want big daddy...

I found a site selling thin ones at 0.012” thick and other ones at 0.020” thick. Guessing 0.020” is standard. 0.012” is described as “for tightening up end play”.

Ideally you want the driver unit to engage at peak TQ (2000-2300 RPM is fine for a stock engine).

My 420cc was Powerland brand. The piston was only a few thousands in the hole. Around 0.005” IIRC. I think I shaved the head 0.075” or 0.085”. A longer rod wasn’t really an option. I don’t remember...

It actually has a lower tensile strength than #35.
