Umm, i do not want to throw monkey wrench in the equation BUT..If your going to do the cam plate conversion to the hydraulic tensioner don't you also need to buy new cams?
The newer hydro cam tensioner uses a roller chain instead of the gear chain, that also includes the inner chain as well.
Plus, if your run-out is anywhere between .005 -.010 I would just go with the same set up that you had just for the cost saving.
The reason why I say about the run-out, the outer feeder gerotor (the thinner set against the cam plate) is thicker at the thinnest point on the earlier models. It measures @ .125" . Now the newer ones that are higher volume for the tensioners, at least the stock HD ones, (not sure on the SE or AM brands), only measure out @ .095" at the thinnest point.
Now it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the .030" of more metal material for the oil pump will take a little more abuse from crank run out than the one that doesn't.
Now keep in mind, I'm an electrician, but its not my first day in the sand box either, and as some of you know, I'm going through the same crap myself
