I have a cam card that The measurment are taken at .020 Tappet hieght. How do I convert it so the measurements are at .050 tappet hieght? This is probably simple to do but I'm not too good at math.

I assume you are talking about the duration measurment. I don't beleive there is a magic formula to convert from .020 to .050 because the ramps on the cams can be different. If you have the cam card with the brand just call the cam manufacturer and they can give you every measurement you need.
