Are you talking about the little hardware on top? Try a better picture. That one is fuzzy. I can't tell if its a pipe plug or an Advil tablet.

C'mon,,was the blower the only table you had open or u just shown off
Without that button against a retro cam you'll have definate catastrophic failure
That bushing would really help as well,,,,at least w/ timing,,,but believe it or not I've taken a timing chain cover off a motor that had some miles put on it w/o that bushing,,,,,ran like ***** but it ran.

Not a roller cam...Just a mild comp cam with roller rockers.. So that means I don't need it correct? But what holds the cam in then??? Chain there is not plate on this block.

LOL Blower was the only clear placeto take the photo lol

Thanks for the help guys.

Wait, not a roller cam, and running roller rockers? Don't think you can have it both ways, as flat tappets have a taper which keep it from sliding out. Roller cams don't have it, thus the need for a cam button.
