    I beleive you mean... lobe centerline.

    This is the point of maximum lift on a cam lobe. Measured by recording number of degree's the crankshaft turn's PAST TDC until the lifter reaches its maximum lift.

    Centerline of a lobe is usually used for a reference point when degreeing the camshaft. Hope thats enough caus eits all I got.

    Rather then do a lot of typing, here is an article written by David Vizard. He explains things very well and also has a couple of books, one specifically on cams and valve trains. It should hopefully provide you with some good background information.

    You're welcome. His book is excellent too, although it was written for the small block. He provides a lot explanations of cam parameters and their affects on performance. Book is available on Amazon: Link to David Vizards book
