ok so I'm following this book on how to rebuild my engine, and get all the pistons in, but I didn't put assembly lube on the cam bearings. Do I have to take them out and start over? I sure hope not. Any help guys.

Thanks

instead of replacing springs i got a set of 1.3 - 1 rockers and use them for break in the put my good ones on learnrd this the hard way of course. easier than poping the springs in and out.
