take the plugs out and have someone crank the engine with the valve cover off to make sure oil is coming out the end of that lube tube. ive had a few cam issues in my car along the way. One of which was a clogged lube tube right at the end on the intake cam. Mr marsh was around the corner to help me with that one back in the day at his first garage rental

also this doesn't mean the cam is trashed, if i were you id mic it out before i made a decision. After you mic it out and figure out how bad it is you can trash it or try polishing out the scrapes and put in a new rocker... shim it out... drive. im tryin to be positive for ya

and not for nothin ive gotton bad cams from jwt before too but im bettin it happens far less often and its just my luck that i got the bad grinds
