I have to make a guide to help install cam bearings tomorrow. About the only tooling I could use from the B, RB engines is the engine stand the mikes, and my data recorder ( pencil and paper).

Larry, would you mind sharing which block you are using? If you have the part number that would be most appreciated.
Thank you!

It's the one that has unfinished bores and mains, it's not very strong. Part # P5153898

The new ones are from DSR

Today was a first. We installed the cam bearings installed the camshaft, are you ready for this, it turned. No gnashing of teeth,or anything but a smile. It was a very good day.

All new parts engines need to have a bolt kit. Finding all the correct size, length, grade, and type has been a real treasure hunt. Dowels and O rings can be elusive. You can't afford to buy each bolt from the dealer. A valve cover bolt is $5.00 X 10 bolts per cover X 2 covers = $ 100. Solution for me is going to the local salvage yard and harvesting a lot of used parts. Billy will be so proud of me.

Today has been a bad day, I feel like I was a tackling dummy.

A bit pricey but ARP makes accessory bolt kits. ARP 540-9801

If you need a small piece of shim stock to shim something and you live in the middle of nowhere or all the stores are closed. Open a few can goods and use the tops. I found them to .005'' to .012'' thick. This weekend it was Charlie The Tuna to the rescue, .007'' was perfect
