Has anyone experienced an oiling problem after installing new cam bearings in a 401?? I had a call from a gentleman that has 40 PSI at 1500 RPM with lifters that will not pump up.i think it is probably the front cam bearing not properly placed, but wonder if anyone else has had this trouble. <P>Thanx for any help!!

I think you are right on target(as usual),Joe.The groove in the # 1 journal of the camshaft, when the bushing is installed right,feeds the lifter galleries

I had that trouble on my 401. The lifters were too tight and would not pump up. Made them all loose and they pumped up fine.
