    One - Piece Rear Main Seal

    When a high pressure fuel pump is run with a steel roller cam, the stock fuel pump pushrod may not be compatible with the steel roller cam. You can damage the steel roller cam as a result of wear at the fuel pump lobe. It is recommended you use a Bronze Tip Fuel Pump Pushrod. Such as the COMP CAMS part # 4607 The stock small block fuel pump attaching plate will work fine.

    All GM Circle Track Crate Engines must use a counterweighted flywheel
    The one-piece rear seal cranks have a 3.00" flywheel flange bolt pattern.
