    Intermediate Timing Chain Gear fit

    Can anybody tell me if some perceptable clearance of the gear to shaft is excessive? It fits well but if I wiggle it up and down I can feel some play. The internal bearing shows even moderate wear with the copper showing through a faint bit.

    I can't find any specs. I don't think it had any issues before tear down in the timing chains.

    EDIT: never mind with assembly lube it's unperceptable and I'm not going to worry about it. Need to get this thing done.
