Figure 1. Camshaft and Related Parts

The camshaft is supported by seven bearing assemblies, consisting of precision-type, replaceable bearing shell inserts that are split at their center lines. Current non-tin-plated production bearing shells are identified by their shiny aluminum color. Current tin-plated service bearing shells have a dull gray sheen. The lower bearing shell is positioned in a saddle that is integral with the cylinder head. The upper bearing shell is held in place by a machined camshaft cap. Upper and lower bearing shells are identical and have locating tangs and oil holes. Only the upper bearing shell oil holes index with oil supply holes in the camshaft caps. These camshaft caps are precision line-bored after assembly to the cylinder head. ‪

Note: Caps are NOT interchangeable once the head is finished. Caps are numbered and must NOT be interchanged with other caps of the same part number from stock or from a different cylinder head. See Figure "Camshaft Assembly and Related Parts" .

Figure 5. Rear Camshaft Access Cover

Vertical oil passages at the front and rear of the cylinder head deliver oil from the cylinder block front and rear oil galleries to the No. 1 and 7 lower camshaft bearing saddles. From there, the oil is directed upward ( through the enlarged stud hole) to the No. 1 and 7 upper bearing caps. A drilled passage in each of these caps exits at the rocker arm shaft seat area, where it indexes with a hole in each rocker arm shaft. The rocker arm shafts have internal oil passages that deliver oil to the rocker arm bushings and intermediate upper camshaft bearings. Some of the oil supplied to the rocker arm bushing passes through the oil hole in the bushing to the rocker arm. The rocker arm is drilled to supply oil to the camshaft follower, roller pin, and bushing. The rocker arm is also drilled to supply oil to the valve adjusting screw, valve button, retainer clip, intake, and exhaust valve stems and the fuel injector follower. The No. 4 camshaft cap is “Y” drilled, forming an oil path connection between the front and rear rocker arm shafts, to ensure complete lubrication.
