I "think" I should be ok but want to ask. Will this gear thats on this dist be ok with a stock mellings cam? The cam is a pre 90 style hydraulic flat tappet. Using 10w30 VR1 conventional oil. The engine is stock with a stock oil pump and will not see 6000 rpm , its a low rpm engine. Should I do this modification to the shaft?
Also the instructions also call to remove the oil filter bypass, how do you do this?
I have swapped a few dist and dont remember all this stuff.
Thanks , its a new engine and dont want to shear the gear off
