Only way your starving the cams is if you have issues with the oil passages to the head , from what I see from the cams you had trash go through the cam oil passages all the plugs have to come out of the head or stuff gets trapped and comes loose when you get oil flowing

Tom you are right again, out of the machine shop (couldn't wait for Monday) and he told me exactly what you said, debris in the oil passages, good thing is it all can be saved. Going to p&p, 5 angle valve job and new cam and valve seals. Let me know your thoughts on the Torsen.
