If the journals and lobes are smooth, would it be OK?
These things don't wear out, do they?

This is my first shot at an LS build, and it needs to last about 5-7 years before I frame off the 69 and do it all again. I will probably find by then that a 5.3 is too small and end up selling it. So no point in "wasting" money if a used one will work fine.

They shouldn’t wear out unless the donor engine had a serious oiling issue

Thanks. I have experience with that. The cam I pulled had journals grooved out all over. Bearings were shot as well.
Will check it tomorrow.
