This thrust button replaces the thrust button for our Two-Piece Billet Aluminum timing covers for Chevrolet Small Block and 90 Degree V6 as well as Chevrolet Big Block. In addition, this button fits our 5100 SBC Belt Drive system.
Because all roller cam lobes are ground flat instead of tapered like a hydraulic or solid cam, it is necessary to provide some means of holding the cam back to the rear of the engine. The thrust button rides between the front of the timing gear and the back of the front cover, and can be shimmed for proper end play in the cam. Both solid nylon button and roller thrust bearing styles are availble. Wear plates eliminate the wear at the front of the block and are moly coated.
