The cams are very hard cast iron, and rarely wear at all even if they hit the
tappet guides. Slight rust should harm nothing, accept the appearance, but
visible pitting may cause increased wear rate of the tappets. There is no
plating on the cams.

require replacement or will they work as long as the lobes are within specs?
