Go down to your local auto parts store and rent the puller and use you old cams to install the new bearings....slide on with the lettering facing you and use a rubber malet to seat into place. Use plenty of gear lube.

when do you need it? depending on how the weather holds up I might let you rent mine in a couple of weeks. I personally would not tap cam bearings in altho many do.

also I believe AMS is in the ftw area and they rent tools for cam changes.

Agreed, I want to use the proper tool, even if for just a piece of mind. I appreciate your offer and the tip about ams. I was just there yesterday, ill swing in see what they say.

I have the below bearing installer and an adjustable slide hammer type puller that I use to pull my cam bearings. You are welcome to borrow these if you want.

I really appreciate the offer guys. I went ahead and ordered one to keep in the garage. No excuses to change cams on a whim now
