I have somehow found myself on an engine building adventure. It all started when my oil pump seized due to a piece of broken valve stem seal that made it past the oil pump pick-up screen.
It's a 68' 429, in my 66' F100. Since I pulled the motor to install a new pump I decided to throw in a new cam. Today I pulled the cam to find all of my cam bearings are heavily scored and literally falling apart.
To make what could be an extremely long story short I'll get to the point.
Have any of you had to have new cam bearings installed? Did you have to tear the block completely down? (pull crank and pistons) And what was the rough cost?
