    I think the bearing surface is just a bump in the casting that keeps the cam from moving forward. I may be wrong as its been a while. I dont think it is a seperate piece

    It is a part of the cover. Nothing needs to be added.

    My cover dose not have any wear marks on it I would have thought it would if there was no other part there?

    Is this an aluminium or steel cover? The 8ba cam thrusts forward and does use the cover as a thrust face sometimes they can be a little worn on the alloy covers but a rule most are ok to be reused. There is no bushing or shim in there.
