Question about 1993 Ford Ranger SuperCab
End play is pretty much normal on most cams. If yours has a thrust plate holding it into the block, check it for wear (though it won't account for 1/4") On racemobiles & some GM engines a thrust button is used on the end which rides against timing cover to lessen movement. BUT, I would not worry about it! More important is that you index the gears properly. TIP: oil the chain before closing it up... it helps to avoid dry start up wear. The cam gears/chain see the oil last out of everything in the engine.
