As some of you know I have been having this problem with wearing out distributor gear in a very short smount of time(under 2500)miles.
Well I yanked the cam and there is deep grooves in the bearings. So I checked valve spring bind. Sure enough they are binding. The pisser is that when the shop redid the heads they were told to check to see if .480 will work OK. They checked them and said I will have no problem. Well since this is the second rebuild I had to do a differnent camwhich is only a .470. and they still bind.
Does anyone think that this problem might have led to fast cam gear wear?
Regular flat tappet cam(non-roller)
Thanks in advance,
