when you first come to there is a search feature that can be used, I know you didn't search because I had this same question about a month ago and just searched through old posts. It is the angle of the lifters or the way the cam is ground that pushed the cam to the back of the engine. Use the search feature

K5, there is no retaining plate on the non-roller sbc, basically a "tight" cam chain and gear keep it aligned. For very high perf. some builders install a nylon/poly cam button at the nose of the cam that kisses the front cover if the cam tries to walk forward.
