I am installing the timing set on my 351 and was wondering (1) where can i get a dowel pin for the camshaft to gear (2) Do i need to install the fuel pump eccentric if i am going efi, does the eccentric have any other purpose. or can i just use the dowel pin and a bolt/washer? any help appreciated.

If you don't have an old stock cam laying around (hopefully with the dowel still in it), then you will have to call around for one.
I have been able to get one from a local machine shop before, and the guy didn't charge for it.
He had a big box full of them.

so the dowel pin doesnt come through the gear on the cam? what keeps it firm against the cam and the gear if there is a hole in the cam sprocket? I dont have a lot of the hardware that i need. so i am trying to slowly piece it together.
I have a cloyes double roller timing set for a 351w and i have the original dowel pin now. What is the easiest way to go about doing this? How do i know if the dowel is long enough? Do i just tap the dowel into the camshaft and put the cam sprocket on with a washer on the cam bolt and call it good?
