Question about 1989 Chevrolet Corvette
You can try putting a thrust button on the front of the cam (available at speed shops) That will keep the cam from walking back and forth. Also, check the shims between the gear and housing. if I remember correctly the clearance there is minimum of 15 thousandths. If it's tighter than that it may bind on the cam gear. Also, if the gear has failed multiple times take a good look at the teeth on the cam. If they have become damaged, it will continue to "eat" dist gear unless you remove the cam and either "dress" the gear or change the cam.
