Cole, I hadn't even thought about the cam lobes- I hope you aren't right- but fear that you may be exactly right, now that I think about it from that prospective.

Good catch, and a vacuum reading will confirm that- or a mis-adjusted valve(s), if the needle has a quick oscillation. If the reading is low and steady, there's hope..
