So, I'm tearing down my donor engine and measured the camshaft. The journals are well within limits but the lobes are worn. Intake generally around .0040 to .0050 out of limit and exhaust around .0005 to .0010 out. I've been looking for several hours online for a new cam to no avail. Anyone have a lead?

How about a used one. Or adjust lash to compensate for wear

A used one may have the same issues. Even with adjusting the rockers, I may regain the lift, but wouldn't the wear affect the valve duration? Otherwise, what reason would the factory manual say to replace other than making a profit?

To make a profit.

There should be no reason your cam is wore out unless engine was run without oil. In which case the rockers and probably cam bores are bad. So then why bother rebuilding something not rebuild able. Otherwise move on or contact 3tech for an upgrade that would be good.

The cam is the first thing I put a mike to. Visually the motor looks good, just need to mike everything and the cam was a good place to start. I plan on going first over on the block just because I can.

It appears a g16 cam may work. I need to poke around more to figure out which year and model will interchange.
