Question about 1996 Isuzu Rodeo
Cam shaft has grabbed after head gasket replaced. Several journals appear to be short of lube, but others are not. There is oil lying on top of head so the cam should be lubing.
Remove the cam and double check the journals. If the truck had gotten hot enough, it could've scarred the journals. Make sure the journals are nice and smooth. If they're not, it will cause a bind on the camshaft causing it to "grab". I just went through this on a Lincoln Navigator.
