Okay, I got another rebuild question. The second smallest cam bearing has three oil holes in it. but where it goes in the block has one oil hole in it. does this really matter? or is it the wrong bearing?

Doesn't matter for early F engines. Just make sure that one of the bearing holes lines up w/ the oil drilling in the block. Extra holes are for late F and 2F cam/ valvetrain oiling system.
