Cam Bearing Install Building a 350 chevy part 2

Here I am replacing the cam bearings in my small block 350 I'm building for my 1978 Nova Custom. I didn't notice until watching the video that the 2, 3, & 4 bearings were installed at the 6 o'clock position (oil feed hole pointing straight down) instead of the 5 o'clock position my GM service manual specifies. Check out my site at for more info on my nova. I also have more videos of it in my channel.
