I plan to do this to a differrent 3.8 block when I get one.So I have
not measured the cam or the the cam journals yet.This is
standard practice when I build a H.D motor . I have done one
ford v-8 block with torrington needle bearings.I had to bore the
cam bearing journals to get the proper OD for the bearings.
SVO did sell bearings for this.

You may need to find bearings that fit the OD of your cam journals
or grind the cam to fit the ID of the bearings.And you may also
need to bore the cam journals ID to fit the OD of the bearings.

To me this is worth doing a cam bearing install on the cam.When
I do this I did not notice so much as a large horse power gain.
All though there is a HP gain.But the usable horse power you have
will turn on much faster.And this part is very noticable.
