Good morning. I'm checking the gap between the cam button and timing cover....cam 'walk' if you will.
I had the cam pushed in against the torrington thrust bearing (just a plain brass washer or ring - about .030 thickness) and a roller type cam button in front.
The chain is not pulling it forward. I installed the cover then pulled the cam forward to see how much it walked.
Thanks for asking.
Also to note, my intake valves are 2.08 (124.8 grams vs 116.5 grams for a 2.05) so I'm still trying to factor in spring weight and rev kit spring pressure and wonder if the crane springs (part# 99893 - 150 seated @ 1.8, 340 @ 1.3) will be enough.
