    cam end play?

    I'm tearing down a 89 SC engine and when i was moving the gear off the cam i noticed it seemed like it had quite a bit of end play. Most of my experience has been with the mod series engines so not sure what is an acceptable amount (looks around 1/16th an inch. Also does the Connecting rods have TTY bolts? and do they come with numbers stanmped on the caps and rods from the factory or has this been apart before?

    End play is measured with everything assembled. Yes, the rods are stamped from the factory.
