It more than likely flattened the lobe too,if you don't mind changing it out you could try a new lifter on it and see if it will wouldn't be out anything but a new lifter.I bet it will go ahead and eat it again tho.

Ya, I'll go with the cam being junk too.

Might be an issue with coilbind on the springs and/or retainer-guide clearance. To go in 100 miles, even a badly broke in cam will normally make it past that.

Are any of the others worn abnormally?

Nope all the others look great, just that one. I will probably go ahead and change cam and lifters, I was just looking for second opinions befroe doing so.

Lack of lifter rotation? Check the lifter bore and offset to the cam lobe(core shift?)
