While I'm rebuilding my old Skoda Estelle engine I got this new issue: I have found a better engine block that I want to use, however the camshaft I have from the other block, sinks too much when I put it in its place. It goes down for about 3 or 4 mm. When I look to the camshaft from the crankcase perspective, I see it shifted towards the block's rear in all its seats.
The parts catalog for this engine doesn't show a spacer washer in any of the camshaft extremes. The block has its sheet metal plug there.
So question is: can I add a spacer washer inside the rearmost camshaft seat, so it wedges the camshaft out and put it in the right place? It is an aluminum block, but I guess a mild steel washer (that I can fabricate with the needed precision) may do, since it will friction against the camshaft tail there.
