I am installing my 2 piece fuel pump eccentic on my 351C and the outer ring seems very loose.I know the outer ring is supose to move freely around the inner eccentric but with the fuel pump installed the outer ring moves a lot and I am concerned about it making noise when the motor is running. The eccentric does not look worn and the cam bolt is tight. The cam gear is machined down where the eccentric rides and maybe machined to much. I was thinking about trying to use the 1 piece eccentric to avoid a noise problem that may occur. Any advise?

The pump lever will keep enough pressure on the eccentric to keep it quiet. It is supposed to be loose.
