  1. Gen VI BBC cam oiling (sorta)

    Hotrodding Basics
    Okay, on the Gen VI BBC the camshaft has the nose machined for a retainer that bolts onto the front of the block and limits cam walk. Why doesn't it wear!?!? If oil is able to get on the nose to lube it then why doesn't it leak from behind the timing chain? What am I missing? Greg
