Timing cover for retrofit roller cam
I'm putting a retrofit roller cam and roller lifters in a Gen 1 350 for my 67 El Camino. It looks to me like having a timing cover with a cam button adjuster would make things a hell of a lot easier. Does anyone have any opinions on the two covers that are offered by Cloyes? Are there others on the market that have that feature? And, I'm assuming you can use a dial caliper at the plug at the rear of the engine while adjusting the play through the timing cover? Am I right about that?
A separate question - has anyone had experience in reinforcing a stock timing cover to be able to hold back the cam button?
I find the whole thing about adjusting the camshaft forward and back play kind of daunting. Maybe I'm too worried about it. But if anyone has words of advice and/or encouragement, that would be great.
Thanks a lot,
