Camshaft bearings

looks like I need new Cam bearings, how are they usualy done on a Cleveland-
lined bored/honed to size once in the block or are finished bearing installed?
I've done most jobs before but never needed to do this work before.

I believe mine were finished bearings installed. And that was at a REPCO machine shop which bored the block oversize

The cop said "Do you know why I pulled you over". I said " Well, that all depends on how long you have been following me!"

Re: Camshaft bearings

Most are pre-finished, but be warned.

They are easy to remove, but installation should be done with a fair bit of care.

If not installed true then you can have one bearing that will be out.

Always check after installation with your camshaft to make sure it spins freely.
