M103 2.6 Cam bearings
I was wondering if anyone knows if camshaft bearings are available for an M103 2.6. I overheated and am changing a head I bought without rockers or the cam risers. The bearings look OK but they look like regular bearings and I cant find them here or anywhere else. Can I use the old cam and risers on the new head?

The head and cam towers are the cam bearings, there are no traditional shell bearings. Supposedly the towers are mated to the head but M/B is pretty meticulous in their machine work and I haven't ever seen problems in mix and match setups. You want to make sure you put the towers in the correct locations and just check to be sure there is no binding of the camshaft with everything bolted down. If that checks out I wouldn't have any reservations.

Thanks. They sure look like their is a bearing in there! I have mix-matched them on an 87 260 with a soft cam but I never did a head before so I figured I may as well be thorough.

Happy New Year
