I recently visited a fellow hot rodder, he had several used and new cams stored in plastic trash bags in his attic, he went to get one for a engine build only to find all the cams totally rusted even though the had sprayed each with oil before placing them in the plastic bag before sealing it with a rubber band,
Ive got dozens of new and used cams Ive stored over the years, heres how to do it correctly
(1)buy a length of 2" PVC PIPE
(2) cut it in to 24" lengths
(add a GLUE ON CAP TO ONE END) (LABLE CONTENTS ON SIDE WITH MAJIC MARKER)(TAPE CAM CARD TO TUBE ON OUTSIDE ALSO INSIDE PLASTIC ZIP LOC BAG)
(drop cam inside, cover with qt of NEW oil add TIGHTLY SCREWED IN PLACE BLACK RUBBER CAP WITH RADIATOR CLAMP)
STAND it vertically ON PVC CAP END, USE SEVERAL BUNGEE CORDs TO FASTEN TO END OF WORK BENCH
TOTAL COST LESS THAN $20 FOR 5-10 CAM STORAGE CONTAINERS

Go for it. One 10 or 12 inch pvc pipe and about a gallon or two of oil:laughing:
