I'm rebuilding a motor. 5.7 1996 chevy. It did not have anything behind cam sprocket when I took the motor out. Do I need a thrust plate or something behind the sprocket or does the lifters keep the cam from coming out?
If I stop and shut the car off for 10 or 20 mins then It runs fine for a bit until it begins again any ideas on what it is
