Screamin' Eagle hybrid cam plate - questions?
I have a project bike, a 2002 FLHPI.
Today I replaced the old style cam set up with a Screamin' Eagle 25284-08 Billet Hybrid Cam Plate. I did this so I could keep the present chain drive TW21's. I found the instructions a bit unclear
My questions are as follows:
The old rear cam sprocket had a spacer and a shim behind it. The new set up required purchace of a bag of new spacers. It was unclear if I should reuse the shim with the new spacers of not.
I couldn't get good sprocket alignment with the shim, so I left it out and just used a spacer.
Any problem with that?
Also when the rear cam sprocket was finally torqued down, there was a bit of end play in the cam shaft. In other words I could grab the sprocket and move the entire cam shaft a millimeter or so in and out.
Any problem with this?
The end play was considerably less when the hydraulic tensioner was installed but none the less it was still there.
Any advice welcome!
PS. Yes I did change the inner bearings to Torringtons.
