Tear down complete

Took me 6 hours but it's tore down. Exhaust gone. And whole top end off tomorrow is cleaning time and hopefully install new cam and lifters so I can order my new push rods

Xxx just means roller block. It is the most common.

Well all is put on hold the F'ed up my cam and I have to send it back and get another one. 1st put cam in and timing gear bolt is to small. So easy fix right I went and got another bolt grade 8. That fits. Put cam back in and the dail pin that goes through top timing gear is about half inch to long it goes all the way through gear and hitting washer not allowing the bolt to seat proper. Grrrrr. This all took place at 5:15 this afternoon so the cam company "cam motion" is closed they will here it tomorrow

Idk TH idk. Cam motion is a company out of baton rouge the custom grinds cams. Yea I hope they do fix it. It's either fix it or give me my money back so I can call comp. and next question I can't get it on my phone. But I checked my pushrods length and I need a 6 3/8 in pushrod hardened for guide plates if anyone can find them and post and link. It would be helpful thanks in advance

Ok talked to cam company. They did increase size of timing bolt for strength and the dowl pin is one for the fuel pump that goes in to timing cover so they said either grind down pin or cut notch in washer
