The EOS theory sounds interesting and I will consider that the next time I buy oil!
In the last few years I had three cams go flat on the break-in! Almost turned me off to hotrodding completely. I was considering hanging myself from my engine cherry picker! hahaha
But, I think most lobe failures that I had with my BBC's can be traced back to large clearances in the mains and rod bearing. I have since tightened up the bearings and had no problems since. Oil pressure also maintains better when warm.
0.0015 to 0.002 did the trick. 0.003 was too big!
Only use 0.003 on the rear main, 0.0015 to 0.0020 everywhere else.
