Hi Cogsy/ Michael
Not sure if mine will ever run, you remenber a while back I said I had messed up the block, well nothing has changed. I have no idea how I did it but the camshaft tunnel is not centered, i did not notice it until well after boring the tunnel and have no idea how I did it.
Hi Steve/MichaelTo be honest I dont think the cam being "out of place" will be a problem other than the gears being meshed well. If the gears get the cam rotating with minimal slop i believe it will run and probably better than you think.
Have you checked the gear mesh yet?
