I am only repeating what I've read, but from what I understand, part of the reason for hanging or setting them upright on the flywheel flange is that if they are laid down horizontally, they can develop a bow in them...the same with camshafts. I know it sounds impossible, given the material they're made out of, but I've read/heard that for years... Scott

It does sound odd but, given enough time almost any object no matter how hard will begin to form to its environment. I have heard more than one story about a cam that is no longer straight after being stored on a work bench for a couple of years.
