Should camshaft have freeplay in it after valve adjust?

Recommended Posts

I dont recall free play in the cam before valve adjust, might of been there. After valve adjust/reshim when I put the feeler under it it moves a little. Normal?

Im referring to a little freeplay when either I wiggle it up and down, or when I put a tight guage under it it moves.

I didnt/couldnt get the Stopper plate bolt off the other end of the cam, but was able to do the job anyway without issue. But wondering if that caused this symptom. What does loosening this stopper plate bolt do anyway? Cam pops right off whether its loos or tight...
