Installing the cam bearings requires a special tool (we’re using one from Goodson), but if you plan to build your own engines, it’s a good investment. Chevrolet small-block cam bearings are stepped in size, so you have to make sure you get the right ones in the correct position. The correct placement is marked on the flap of the box, as you can see here. Notice that the fifth bearing housing bore is larger than the bores for number three and four.
