Well I got a chance to play with my motor a little bit last night. Without knowing it my motor had broken one of the 2 bolts that hold the cam thrust plate on and busted one of the ears off the plate. It wasn't a surprise to me luckily because I had opened up the motor last year and found the issue.
I couldn't get the bolt extracted so I just had to drill out the bolt and tapped the whole for a bigger bolt. instead of the 1/4 20 thread it is now a 5/16 18 thread (at least I think it was a 18). Either way it went down smoothly and now I can button up the bottom half of my motor finally once I get the gaskets.

That huge thing is sitting under the motor in one of the pics. I removed it awhile back. I am going to probably stick with the SN stuff from the junk yard to help make the steering better. I'm still keeping your offer on the table just in case I can't find what I need. I haven't made a trip to the junk yard yet due to the weather.
