Default spun camshaft!

had a mechanic look at the bonnie a few weeks back. the key way spun on the end of the cam giving the out of time performance that had me scratching my head! new cam from rockauto$400, used motor from salvage yard $500. the search begins. have never seen a cam do that before.

If you are going to replace the cam, you may as well upgrade. Kill 2 birds with one stone.

Quick google reveals this:

Comp Cams Xtreme Energy L36 Cam 1: 3800 Performance

Comp Cams Xtreme Energy for $324.99.

Otherwise, a used engine is a good bet too.
