Building a 429 CJ that had a cam failure, ordered a cam lifters and valve springs from Bullet racing, Driven assembly and break in oil recommend, any other suggestions to avoid a repeat.

Thanks

^Odd. Both lobes on #1 as well as bearing wear at that area. I would double check everything very carefully, including the valve guides and lifter bores on the failed lobes. Sounds like something else going on besides low Zink oil.

Cam break in service. They offer sell quality lifters as well.

Sometimes it's the lifters that are junk
