Hi I Have destroyed the CAM thrust surface in my block. Hot rollercam with high springload. Cloyes timing set and a cambutton with needles
Does anyone know If this is a common problem with rollercams? Do I need to use some kind of bearing, Torrington?
Regards
Erik

Man I just saw this post for the first time. The common modification is a 'ditch' that you grind that diverts oil from the lifter galley, over the edge of the front hole in the block, that flows down behind the timing gear. sounds like you didn't leave adequate clearance between the thrust bearing and timing cover.

Thankes for your answer. I am now replacing the damage area with bronze. I Will make this ditch you describe maybe I had to little clearance to. Maybe drill a small hole in to the oil galley for even better oiling.
