no! maybe Im not explaining things well
I think you are overthinking every single issue and are not understanding some basics
the issue with hotcams is they sometimes have bad batches of disimilar metals...what happens(for those that suffer from bad hotcams) is they either start pitting and or start pitting the rockers...if either metals are dissimilar or one is much stringer than the other guess what? one starts getting eaten..thats all I was trying to express.
lastly that coating is designed to be used up after a certain amount of hours...its DESIGNED to shed off...if the cams didnt have that coating it woukd be much easier to damage either the lobes or the rockers...
oh about the cam lube causing the weep holes to get plugged up...
look up centrifugal rotation or anything related to rotation...you could plug the damn thing with wax if you want, the force of the cam spinning at speed is enough to squeeze out most anything... so no excess lube will not plug up a hotcam and cause failures...
I poured STP all over my cam and rockers...its part of the reason my old clutch gave away...but my cam sounds fine and looks great too...
however I dont have a hotcam...so apples to oranges
