General Engine questions
May be a dumb question, but I haven't really had much experience with working on engines to a great extent, but I am quite interested in them.
I have been watching some videos on camshaft installation, and had some questions. When they put the camshaft in, the back of the camshaft is exposed on the back of the engine. They don't show installing a seal or anything. Is there supposed to be a freeze plug or seal? Wouldn't it leak oil? Can the camshaft slide out the back of the engine if you have the cam timing gear off and push it?
