How much press do you need for a sleeve on a camshaft journal?

I have used .0008" to .0012" press fit for cast iron dist drive gears. I would use the same for this. Just make sure when you grind the od on the cam to match the sleeve, it has zero taper. Heat the sleeve with a propane torch and slide it on.
