I made a lapping tool using 400 grit paper and using engine oil was able to take the bore out to the min. of 15.000mm. It sure feels better than before. I sanded the shaft in the cam housing a bit also....I'm still probably not at the min. clearance but better than it was.

A fellow a few miles from here just fired up his 3.2, this morning, after at top end rebuild and everything went fine until 5 minutes of running when the right tensioner failed. I don't want this to happen to me....I'm asking what went wrong and will report.
