Hmmmm.....When I put the Cam in 2 years ago, I put lube all over the journals.
I really don't think I did the damage when pulling the cam out. I was VERY careful and pulled it out VERY slowly.
1 more thing that I maybe should have added now that some are mentioning lack of oil: What about contaminated oil? I say this because the whole reason I pulled the cam out was because the head gaskets blew and I figured while I had things that far apart, I'd put a little bit bigger cam in it. The oil has at least 1/2 quart of antifreeze in it and this was before even pulling anything apart. Could this be what wiped it out?
Maybe I should pull the motor and replace ALL of the engine bearings? (seeing as how I have to pull the motor to replace the cam bearings anyways)
