I did on the back end of the cam with the pointed edge of my lug wrench as a pry bar
I could not get the distributor gear to pass through the second to last cam bearing of my 355 - it was a crower solid
Then it got stuck at each remaining one after that - I tried a quart oil all over the cam
engine has been out for a while but its in my games room covered and just minus the heads
my mind tells me that at the end of the exercise I saw a fine thread like thinge about 1/2 inch long and MADE OF STEEL!!! drop out the front cam bearing area when almost removing the last half of the cam
Can the distributor cam gear or cam actually tear into the bearing - and does this mean I ruined a bearing (I cannot see any physical damage but I did see the piece of steel thread!!
What do you think?? and what to look for??
