Camshaft Movement

  1. I installed the cam and thrust plate. The cam moves in and out a little bit. Should there be no movement at all?
     
  2. A little play is normal when you don't have the timing gear installed. Install the timing chain gear and recheck. You should only have somewhere around .004" end play (if I remember correctly).

  3. A few months ago I bought a Cloyes timing chain (part number 9145) and today I tried putting it on and it does not fit. The teeth won't go into the chain nice and even. What timing chain should I buy that will fit?
     
  4. Frpp makes one. I have a melling, i may have even got it from autozone, i can't remember now.
    Are you sure you have the right part# for your application?

  5. You could buy a billet gear set for around $66 from Summit or Trick flow... they are made by SA Gear
