Station two is where the camshaft is installed. The plant uses many specialized tools to ensure the highest quality and consistent builds. For the cam a special guide is attached to the end of the cam to help guide it through the block. All parts are oiled using only Mobil1 oil. A nylon keeper is then attached to the back of the block to keep the cam in place and the cam retainer plate is installed on the front of the block. The block is then put on a rolling engine stand, rotated and the LS7 valley cover is installed. After the oil-galley plugs and lifters are installed the engine is rolled to the next station.
