double thrust cam bearings

Post by kepko » Mon Aug 28, 2006 4:30 pm

you stated that since 1997 every engine you have built has double cam thrust bearing...but...the engine kits come with single cam bearing
should we be exchanging these for double cam thrust bearing kits at the type 4 store????

What we build and what we sell in kits are two different things. If I were to arrange all the kits as well as we do the complete engines they would not be any cheaper than my complete engine.

The engine kit program is designed to reach a different customer than the complete builds.

Most of the cams that come with the kits are not radical enough to necessitate a double thrust bearing- its part of their design.
