Re: Cam with P.J. gear drive. How to set up correct thrust???
By design, the direction of the gear cut of the distributor/camshaft relationship with the load of the oil pump, the camshaft is always trying to go out the back of the block.
The cam bearings in the block are usually flush with the webbing of the block. Better fitment test is to compare the hole alignment of the bearing shells and the block oil passage holes with a coat hangar, if the wire passes through and the visual check shows the all of the holes of each aligned, then one can assume the bearing shells are correctly installed.
The bearing journal of the camshaft may be wider than the bearing shell itself.
