The only issue was the shaft was bent. That was the reason I sent it to him. I also didn't know what els...

I also painted the Timing cover and Crank pulley.

I was also able to fit the center bearing on the cam shaft and get it to slide into the block. I thought I was going to have an issue with it but it went in just fine.

Free just pay shipping. This was on my car and once I cleaned it up I found this repair. I know it's cracked and fixed but I can't bring myself to throw anything away especially when there is only so many left. So if you want it let me know. It's for a 26/7.
