If you build an engine and use a flat tappet cam, make sure you break it in properly, and us an oil with sufficient ZDDP, or you'll have big problems. Valvoline VR1 has 1300 ppm ZDDP, and most cam manufactures require at least 1200 ppm. Also note that most deisel oils have removed ZDDP including Rotella.
