Because of rotational thrust, there are other changes. So the cam would bear on the same thrust face as normal.
The distributor drive gear
, not the entire assembly. It would be like a mirror image of the standard gear.
The water pump
Probably the oil
pump as well.
Firing order probably wouldn't be 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2, I'm guessing, 1,2,7,5,6,3,4,8.
So more than I stated earlier, didn't really think in the amount of detail needed.
Ooops, delmarrey beat me to it. I'm going sailing anyway, later.
