If you count the times the cam hits the pushrod in 1 minute ,times 2 will give the engine RPM'S.Dick in central PA.

James, Welcome. If you want speeds and pully diameters, use this formula. Quite easy.

D1 X S1 = D2 X S2. D = diameter of the pully. S = speed of the pulley

Example, 4" pully on engine turning at 375 RPM. 10" pully in impliment.

4 X 375 Divided by 10 =

Speed of imp. would be 150 RPM

Hope this helped,

Jim
