Camshaft Design
Many traditional flat-tappet camshafts use lobes with a very slight angle around the lobe surface. This very slight angle puts a very slight side-load on the camshaft, helping to push it back toward the distributor to compensate for the camshaft's inherent tendency to unscrew itself from the engine block. The roller lifters that came into use during the 1980s allowed manufacturers to make their camshafts more aggressive, but didn't allow for lobe angles to keep the cam in the block. This isn't really a problem for engines that use a front-mount distributor, but can cause serious problems for engines without one.

W takim sensie że w silnikach bez aparatu zapłonowego (choć to chyba raczej nie spotykane w starych amerykańskich jednostkach) czy że w aparatach nie montowanych na przodzie silnika ?
