22RE camshaft cap replacement

Sorry Guys, my internet is very limited right now (because Verizon SUCKS) and so I dont have the time to search this a great deal. Rather I need a simplish answer, PLEASE

Went to adjust my rockers this morning and can see that my #2 camshaft bearing cap is cracked on one side, this is the one in the middle of the three. This would explain why it seemed to float at high RPM,

Looks like I can run it OK for awhile with low RPMs but when I get to replacing it, can I simply use a new cap? Are these aligned honed?
Do they use a bearing or are they simply run without bearings?

I have`nt seen the bottom of the bearing so I dont know if its any good, but if it is, can I trough a cap on it and expect it to work?

Thanks in advance.
Randall

They are head specific. I have had to replace one before. If you can get a hand full of the same # and try each of them till you get a good match it can be done. Too tight is bad and so is too loose. Just going to take a little time. If you find one that is too loose you can sand the mounting surface a bit to try and achieve the right tolerance.

I have a few heads with the caps if you need one.
