22GT, question about this, just for trivia for myself.
If you have an older block that came with the spacer, and you replace everything, cam gear, retaining plate and screws, will that work??
Oh, and as much as I dislike the Haynes manual, they do have torque values. They are at the beginning of each chapter. But half the stuff in those books don't cover cars that come with various engines.
Ex: we bought one for my sons '98 Ford Ranger. that year Ranger came with two different style rear drum brakes. They only cover the larger brakes in the book, NOT ONE photo of the smaller brake system. And we had many missing parts and wrong springs we had to figure out how to replace.
