Checking some specs on my machined block against the "How to rebuild your small-block Ford" book, It states that the first cam bearing should be 0.005-0.020 behind the front face. I measured mine and it is 0.062 down. Will this cause instability or will the oil take up the slack or should I get it moved further out?

I'd have it moved back. I never ignore specs, that will bite you in the butt every time.

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you got it made.
