hydralic roller cam conversion

I understand that the roller cam has the button on the timing cover to control endplay at the front , What controls endplay at the rear ?

You actually need a wear plate between the timing gear and block, so the block doesn't get ground up...

Yes a wear plate, or a timing set wth a torrington bearing on the back of the cam gear like i went with. The cam goes up against the back block plug, which should be flush with the outside of the block. You will have to trim some off of the plastick cam button, because the timing cover wont fit all the way on unless you shave some off the button. I used a needle bearing button on mine, and what i did was put some grease on the end of the button, stuck the cover up against the block to see where the button was hitting the chrome cover. I then turned the cover face down on some wood with a socket the size of the button, and made a round dent in the cover. Just enough to give the cam about .005 movement.

Another pretty neat adjustability feature is to get a Cloyes timing cover.
