Sure...the cam wiped out some lobes and all of that material was transported throughout your engine by the oil pump. The babbit material that USED to cover the copper on your bearings was basically ground off by X-cam lobes.

Unfortunately it's time to tear the entire engine apart and get everything cleaned, the crank may need to be polished, new cam bearings?? You won't know until you tear it down and inspect everything. Make sure the new engine start up procedure is done with the proper lubricants.
