Cam followers

I noticed that my cam followers have different depth inside them. Half of them is about 1 mm deeper than the others. What is going on here?

The wonderful world of "will(nearly)fit" parts. :ermm:

Does this affect the height that the pushrods sit at also?  1mm should be within adjustment of the tappets.....

Really important to check that the follower faces are flat and not crowned.  If you hold two face to face there should be no "rock" between them and if you add a fine layer of grease between them, they should stick together.

Unfortunately there are some out there which are crowned and have a very slight dome to the face.  These will not live long.  Can also come from suppliers who should know better!
