  • camshaft end play
  • I'm getting ready to order the replacement camshaft gear for my 52 8n side mount. The manual talks about end play between the gear and engine boss. If too great it says to use a thinner cover gasket. The dealer service training manual says to use a thrust washer to reduce end play. It may not be a problem as I haven't gotten to that point but before ordering thought I would reach out for advice.

  • I believe that you will find that the thrust washer is applicable only to the front mount units.
