GTC post above makes me think I should not bother splitting the case...

I had a good look through using an ebay borescope camera (not that great) but the inside of my case is very very clean with almost no residue at all......
I would open up the case and rebuild the bottom end - - since you are already this far along.
Because of the damaged cams, you may find damaged bearings also.
You have already done the hard work on this engine . . .

We found this in our engine . . . #5 rod bearing damage - either bad/low oil or run too hot . . .
And, the intermediate shaft bearings needed replacement . . . so rods, crank, and flywheel off to machine shop for refurbish and balancing - well worth the low cost . . .
