I'm putting back together a dizzy, cobbled from a couple of "parts" distributors. When I install the collar (on the same shaft it came on, but not in the same housing), there's slightly less than 1/8" play up and down. Will that be a problem?

I just did my 390 dist and i thought the book for that one said .028".
I know in my truck dist (223 6cyl) i had about 1/8' and the shaft rode up and the rotor hit the towers in the cap.....made a wierd whirling sound and filled the cap with brass dust.

How odd... I just test-fit the shaft in its original housing... there's still the same play in the shaft.
