I can't tell if that plate is set up for bearings? I know the SE camplate for 07 and newer models has bronze bushings in there - does anyone know if the part number above is for use with bearings or is there a self material bushing area like the stock 07 and newer plates??
Yes as you can see below the plate you are referring to [HD# 25284-08] does indeed take bearings in the outter cam journal area. The only reason to run this "particular" cam plate is if one is "married" to their current cams and they desire to run with the new styled oil pump. One should realize that much of the previous failures with the old style tensioners was attributed to the design of the older styled "morse" / "hy-vo" chain. The jury in my opinion will still be "out" determining how successful one might be with running with this set up.
