I am assuming it is the same as TC's but want to check here first.  Also, are we shimming cam for sprocket alignment or for tolerance.  thx

Put a cam in the other day and the service manual called for torquing the plate but leave pump screws at 9-18 inch/lbs, rotate crank once then snug to spec.

go slow  on the torqueing.  keep it where you can rotate the rear wheel and see if you get binding or a very tight spot. leave chain off.
