Default Magneto install, no cam endplay?

Putting new hunt magneto on brandy new evo. Before opening the gear case, I was curious as to what the factory end play on the cam was. I couldn't get a feeler between cam and thrust washer at the back. Smallest feeler I've got is .0015 . So, I naturally assume I'm the problem, and it'll be obvious once the gear chest is open.

Gear cover came off no prob., all seems well, there are no shims on the outboard end of the cam, and new mag cover goes on with some tightness on cam bushing, but torques up ok with the old gasket on.

End play is still 0, or really close to it.

What now? Is there some way to make sure the cam is snug against the cover?
