I'm going back to the beginning here and assuming you set valve lash at initial start up? That's kinda what I understood you were saying anyway, and if thats the case I'm betting you hurt the cam right off the bat, and now your going to find a loose, or several loose rockers due to a lobe on the way out. If it was started, brought up to operating temp to set lash by your method, then proceeded to cam break in, my moneys on hurt cam.
