I have some Durabond cam bearings.
When cam bearings are installed, are they
directional? Is there a front and a back
or can they go in either way. Also, the number 1 bearing has 2 holes. Which
hole goes in the 2 o'clock postion and where
should the other hole end up?

They are not directional front to back. Just make sure they go in the proper journal if you have a block that uses stock diameter cam bearings. Either hole can go at 2, I've never noticed a difference either way.
