hey everyone, sorry I haven't been on in awhile to update but i have been pretty busy. After talking with my machinist he thinks that between the assembly lubricant and the low temperature it was causing the cam to not move easily. I took it home threw the plate in the parts washer and after letting the shop warm up for a couple hours I ended up with .007" of end play. Thanks for all the input and help everyone. Im glad this turned out not to be as big of a deal as I thought it was going to be.
