    Ok, I am reinstalling my new cam and cam gear. I also bought a new thrust plate and retaining clip.. the old stuff was pretty much wasted, so I bought new.. on the cam there are two slots for clips, but I only bought one for the end retainer. I checked some istallation diagrams, but they only show the end clip as well.. since I did not pull the used crappy stuff apart, I am unsure if another clip is required. The way the diagrams look I only need to put the thrust plate on the cam, then press the cam gear, then install the clip. Is this correct? Does the cam gear seat itself, or do I nned to measure the thrust plate clearance as I press the gear? Thanks.
