I do appreciate any and ALL comments here.
But I hate for this to become a diesel oil debate.
Actually, this thread has now caused me to spend hours reading about ZDDP and flat tappet cams. One thing keeps coming up from oil experts (not chat forum opinions) is diesel oil ain't what it used to be and is not a wise choice when Valvoline VR1 and Mobil1 15w50 are READILY available and have ZDDP greater than 1000 ppm.

Oh crap....I myself probably just started something
I got a chuckle with the pic of the Bullet cam specs that stated "Not legal in California". That in itself makes it GTG!
Now back to my cam choice........
I have been on the Hughes site and have read. I need to read again .... and again
I'm tending to believe I need to be looking for a cam generally referred to as an "RV Cam"
