Camshaft ideas?

Hey all, so I confirmed that my Prowler's issue is the rocker arms and likely a camshaft. Does anyone know where I can get a used camshaft? Or maybe even new rockers for less than $115 a piece? Ebay doesn't seem to have anything, and I can't find any rocker arms other than regular OEM parts which are always on the high end of the price spectrum Ideas? Thanks so much!

I just bought the new OEM valve rockers... painful but necessary Hoping I can get away without a new camshaft.

How bad do your rockers look? Here's what mine looked like when my oil pump gear failed.

Even as bad as that gear looked at idle it would pump oil enough to splatter my roof, but at high RPM's it's going to slip. I replaced my cam & rockers but didn't check the gear like members here warned me, I cooked the new cam and rockers within a few weeks. It would be worth checking the gear or at least check your oil pressure once you get it back together. The gear is about $32.

Yeah mine aren't nearly that bad... I'm trying to get a picture posted but I haven't got it to work yet. How can I check the gear? do I need to pull the engine? I think I have oil pressure, but haven't done a formal test. Once I filled up the oil, I started it up with one of the little side valve covers off and it sprayed my face real bad... I was thinking that the low lubrication factor was due to low oil, but I don't want to take any chances.

Here is a google drive link with some pics of the cam and rockers. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bf...1fhQNYXY5C97vC Does anyone have an opinion if its going to be a bad idea to go with this camshaft? Thanks
