I’m back to update on the Dr project and see if anyone has any answers to an issue I’ve noticed. So I got it running, got a used head and fresh gaskets. But I ended up pulling the valve cover off cause I did a poor job of sealing it with three bond and I noticed the exhaust tappet/cam lobe is slightly scratched/discolored. This is probably a Stupid question because I’m pretty sure it came from oil starvation because the oil level dropped to about half on the dipstick due to a oil hose tearing from the pressure I think but I was thinking it could be something else too since everyone talks about the dr’s having a head prone to oil starvation. I cleaned up the marks you could feel with some 800 grit wet sanding with 10w30 and it cleaned up ok so I’m not too worried.

Yep, watch your oil level. Low level will kill the cam journals & a replacement head is getting up in $$$$$
