How long do those uni-balls last daily driving before they get sloppy?

I'm 100% sure its a lifter eating away at the cam. Its an excuse to build the thing so I'm not mad. 160k on it and the previous owner wasn't up to par on the maintenance so it owes me nothing.

Fair enough. Hopefully you caught it soon enough that it didn’t send Metal through the whole thing

Theres some shiny bits in the oil, very fine metal hairs. I'll be breaking the entire motor down and everything. If the block needs work ill end up boring it out, if its good then ill just build a pretty strong little 5.3.
