    I noticed the CAM operation against the tappet on my new engine wasn't smooth and sometimes the CAMs were getting jammed when they were pushing against the tappets. First I though maybe the CAMs needed a little more filling on the edges but that didn't work either. Finally I noticed the problem had to be with the tappet guides which they were little shorter then what they needed to be. So made new guides a little longer and what a difference in operation and CAMs running so smoothly. Since the guides were a little short, the tappets were slightly loose and were getting pushed to the side and was causing them to jam.
