Scored cam lobe



Took the cam tower apart to reseal, and paint it, and found this.
Other than potentially wearing the lifter a bit faster, so you guys think it would be fine to just throw back in? Pulled the head and tower off a wrecked 85.5
Absolutely no oil varnish on it, and the lifter look really good, better than the one that was on my car (full of gunky oil).
The part number is 944 105 155 9R, so I guess it's a late one.

Which way does it turn?

I don't think its a problem, belts are a bigger problem. Its been in there for more than 20 years and it still works so...

Does it have a ridge that is above the face of the lobe, or is it totally recessed into the lobe.
If no ridge, then it's likely OK

No ridge, just recessed.
It's on the down-stoke, so it's the side the opens the valve.
I wonder how that could have happened, maybe at one point in time there was some debris in the oil.

It should be fine, The top of the lifter looks normal. It just bugs me to install something that has obvious damage.

i have pulled many cam towers and one thing i always look for are extra bolts. it seems that they might come off the tool when removing or perhaps they back out after being installed . i change the inside bolts because i think the washers may be compromised. i have removed bolts without washers (the washers are captured) . back to your ? most likely a cam bolt did the damage.
