NOTICE

Please read this notice and only continue if you are willing to abide by our updated backorder acquisition and fulfillment terms of service.


Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to acquire/restock items reliably. Additionally, a lack of backorder ETA information is a frustrating "new normal" for our hobby. As a result, we have had to change our BACKORDER ACQUISITION TERMS OF SERVICE. If you opt to have us "send backorders later", backordered items will ship automatically if we are able to get them within 30 days. Longer than 30 day backorders WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED. Made-to-order, Special-Order, and Direct-shipped items may take longer than 30 days, and will NOT be auto-canceled.


On the next page, you will be prompted to select a BACKORDER HANDLING INSTRUCTION for your Order Request. In every case, you are NOT CHARGED for out-of-stock items (we ONLY charge for items that are available to be shipped in a timely or reasonably reliable timeframe). If you opt to "send backorders later" you are automatically added to the waitlist for those items, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/Progress/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not direct-shipped, special order or made/machined-to-order.

Currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Please trust that even if we can't reply to your email promptly, we are continuing to work to fulfill your Order Request as best we can, and we will contact you once we have any new information that is not already posted in your online Order Progress/History area in your customer account.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Some of the items in your cart might be out-of-stock, and if that is the case, within a day or two we will post itemized stock status information to your account and/or email you to let you know. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.

Double Thrust Cam Bearings, Type 1 Based Engines, 111-198-541HDBR
Double Thrust Cam Bearings, Type 1 Based Engines, 111-198-541HDBR


 
Stock VW Cam bearings only had 1 thrust bearing, this set provides 2 to halve the thrust bearing wear. This is a really good idea to use on any engine that uses stiffer than stock valves prings, OR uses a bigger than stock camshaft.

Includes 6 shells to do 1 engine.

It's important to note that each thrust bearing will have a bearing tang on it. The case only has one notch for the bearing tang, on the normal thrust bearing half of the case. To install the 2nd Thrust Bearing, you must either file another notch in the bearing saddle, or (what we do) is grind/file off the tang on the 2nd thrust bearing. Just make it smooth. The bearing will not move because bearing crush holds it in, and the regular thrust bearing tang is still present.

Proper bearing installation is very important! Install the bearings into the case and then install the camshaft. Next, tap the cam fore and aft end to end using a soft piece of wood or a brass drift and use some force. This seats the bearing properly into the case. Repeat this 4-5 times back and forth. THEN, you can check your end play and get an accurate measurement.
