Put in the bolt, and walla... Since the end is sealed up with the cam, there is no where for the shavings to go except on the ground....and NOT into the engine. I dont think you can still use the factory engine mounted oil cooler though. So you would have to run the oil filter mount there instead....
This is true- I can do it with the cam in the motor- but what about with the engine in the car? I would hate to have to pull it out. Maybe I could yank the axle and get to it easier... I do alread have the oil filter mount though, so most of the battle is won, just have to drill the cam and buy the clewett mount.
