Put the cam in,bolted up retainer plate,mounted cam sprocket and tightened sprocket to cam.I can turn it with one hand,but surely it should have some end play.I did a measurement and from what it looks like I have .002" of preload on the Torrington....Maybe make a shim to put between the sprocket and cam mounting boss'?How much end play does it need?

.010 should do it.

I was thinking my cam card told what it should be.


'88 Chevy K3500, aluminum head roller cam 511inĀ³ stroker 10.5:1 compression, 96 NV 4500, 94-98 grille, 305/70-16 (33x12) BF Goodrich KM2s, 91 cluster swap

Usually a roller cam is subject to screwing it self forward, if you have one it might be on the cam card. But .010 is what I aim for.
