Re: Need advice wiped cam lobe in new engine
Agree,..too much shrapnel floatin' around,..need to pull her out, inspect, and fix the damage, which could be anywhere that uses down-flow (gravity) for lubrication (up-flow is filtered,..crank and bearings for instance, will be ok).
When installing lifters next time, make sure every one would spin freely in it's bore. If one doesn't, you'll wipe a lobe. This condition is aggravated by lobes that are too steep (in my miniature opinion),..i.e., the Comp Cams XE line.
