Here is a list of mistakes that will result in a pooched flat tappet cam.....please read through several times, then ask questions if you don't understand. Failure to understand everything written here could result in you having to pull the motor, disassemble it, clean it thoroughly to remove all the shrapnel from pooched lobes and lifters, re-purchase of cam and lifters, reassembly of the motor with all new gaskets and then holding your breath that it won't happen again.
