    If it was the oil I would expect all the cam lobes to be worn. Since only one is worn perhaps it isn't getting properly oiled.

    If a cam doesn’t get the proper lube during break-in, one journal or more can start to erode just like what’s pictured. Once it starts, it quickly wears through and continues since both the tappet and the cam are no longer smooth. This is a common failure on cams.

    I let the Kittens out inside my whole shop!

    2 Kittens been jumping over there wall keeping them in and the others caught on. So I removed the wall and set them free today. They ran all over for the first time and could pick up some speed in the shop space and crash into the wall! They figured out how to do stuff like jump, stand on the back legs and swat each other then burn out went back in there room. It is bigger now and they can go where the big ones stay on the other side of the wall. Here is a couple pictures I just took. The first one you can see about 10-11+ of them if you include the eyes glowing. Click image for larger version.

    I'm not as lucky to have AC in my shop like JD, but I did pick up a Portacool from Northern Tool today. It's not great like conditioned air but it sure knocks a little heat out standing in front of it.

    Evaporative coolers are called swamp coolers where I live. They only work well in dry climates like ours, and even then they aren't the best. I'm surprised you're getting any cooling out of the thing in your humid part of the country.

    Any cooling is better than no cooling.

    Definitely works better in dryer climates. The tank dropped to 1/4 full so it was evaporating a little. Some cooling is better than no cooling. You have to stand in front of it to feel any of the benefits, but I knew this before purchasing it. I have it pointed toward my chairs so when I get hot and tired I'll just have a seat.
