Hi Barney,
  You will probably see this on the list, but I wanted your specific 
expert opinion, please.
  I own a '78 Midget 1500 with a recently rebuilt engine. With less than 
200 miles on the rebuild, the cam welded itself to the block. This engine 
design does not incorporate cam bearings. My rebuilder spoke with John 
Twist who suggested the installation of cam bearings; although John had 
never seen a 1500 do this before. My rebuilder is dragging his feet on 
the cam bearing installation until he speaks with someone who can tell 
him (1) why it seized and (2) how to do this conversion properly so it 
won't occur again. Your help is much appreciated. Thank you!

-God Bless,
San Antonio, Texas
