    Does anyone have the tolerance for camshaft endfloat?

    I was going to use 0.003 in. to 0.010 in.

    After discussing with Guru Greg Long, I settled at .004″.

    I asked Greg about setting the timing gears and chain.

    The crank gear has 1 alignment dot and the cam gear has 2.

    Unlike most cars, you do not align the dots opposed to each other.  Both dots are at 5 o’clock, when viewed with the engine sitting on the head surface. You place a straight edge between the 2 sets of dots and make sure it goes through the centerline of the cam gear.

    To confirm, place #1 and #8 cylinder crank journals at top dead center. The cam lobes on #1 should be pointing up and #8 should be pointing down. #1 is at the bottom of the picture. Thanks for your help Greg.
