    There are little caps on the end of the bearings then tend to come off and throw the needle bearings into your motor. The new kit comes with snap rings that prevent that.

    Well...that would be bad, wouldn't it. Learning a lot about LS motors from your thread here. I can see the snap rings in the picture of your updated arms.

    Is that an issue even with stock engines, or does it only become an issue with bigger cams, stronger springs, and higher RPMs?

      I believe it can happen under stock power but it?s more prone to happening with a new cam. Some guys risk it and don?t do the trunion kit and not have any issues. But for the price and the piece of mine.

              • Looking good! I'm glad you can see the orange of the valvecovers and the timing cover just popping out.

                • I can?t wait to get the water pump on. That will look the best imo.

                  • All done!

                    It fired right up!

                    Had to hookie-poo the exhaust but we got it to work to at least get me to the new house.

                          • Thanks fellas! We are closing on our current home and the new house next Monday so it needed to get done ASAP lol. Plus if I worked on it one more day the wife was going to hang me by my balls. Once this snow melts I?ll take it for a spin.

                            • I took the car for about a 10 mile drive today. Cruises nice but basically wants to die at every stop sign. Gonna be a interesting drive to the new house (~40 miles) good thing it?s mostly highway. Needs to be tuned, bad.

                              • Thats pretty standard for an untuned cam install. Seems like it all went well.
