I say just buy Tims cam bearing and call it good. Thats what I have. This way you dont ave to drill and tap all the main saddles- Just my preference.

I may use his bearing this time around but in the past I used a Moroso kit. I'm just a little curious what this guy is doing that requires a link to a diagram, etc?

"I'm just a little curious what this guy is doing that requires a link to a diagram, etc?"
I cant say anything about the Ebay seller but Tim is well known for his products and Knowledge.

After re-reading my post I see where I goofed up and should have been more clear...my bad :oops: My machinist talks with Tim Meyer and likes his products.
In reference to the ebay auction it reads...."The kit comes with the hardware necessary for oil gallery modifications and a web link to a comprehensive pictorial instructional slideshow". After reading this it piqued my curiosity....I've used the Moroso kit, heard about the bearings used as restrictors, was tempted to use lifter bore bushings but never have and remember seeing a Hank the Crank kit in an old Ford engine book. I'm just wondering how this guy on ebay is approaching it. Maybe I have too much time on my hands? :lol:

With a solid roller cam if you bush the right side lifter bores to restrict them( I use .020) and then feed the left side through a restrictor(I usually use about .062) you'll have more oil pressure than you know what to do with even with a totally stock Melling pump with normal cam bearings and the proper clearances.
