Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Brass cam bushings

Still asleep, and posted this on the classified page earlier??? I purchased a reground cam that came with new brass front and center bushings. Does anyone have any experience with these brass parts and how do they compare to the originals?? The font bushing pair allows about 0.030" end play and I.m concerned that this is a little too much. Thanks : Bruce

I sure hope they aren't brass!! Bronze would be OK

.030" end play is way too much. That can be handled with shim washers against the front cover

Thanks Les : That's what I thought too. How do I install shim washers against the front cover? BTW, how do you tell brass from bronze?? Bruce

Bronze is "redder", brass is more yellow
I will be installing some shim washers (today or tomorrow),and I will take some pictures
