We recently shipped a forged 5.7 to an installer that has numerous builds under his belt. Shortly after receiving the engine, I received an email from them stating that they felt the cam bearings were installed incorrectly. To clarify, the 09-10 5.7 hemi engines are different from the older 5.7's as well as the 6.1's in that the first cam bearing does not have the oiling hole in the 6 o'clock position. The oiling hole is in fact at the 12 o'clock position. If you receive an engine from us, do not be alarmed as that is the correct position of the bearing.

In the pic below, you can see the oiling hole at the 6 o'clock position on the 2, 3, 4, and 5th bearing. The first bearing will always have the hole at 12 o'clock.




If you have a 6.1 or older 5.7, the oiling hole will be at the 6 o'clock position on all 5 cam bearings.

Is there any benefit having the oiling hole on the top rather than the bottom?
