Response to more theories. Post edited.
i'd say your rundown is right, the cam is forced rearward by driving the oil pump, the dizzy gear is driven downward and the timing gear is thrusting against the retainer plate
so Dans' cam has been running too far back in the block the whole time... causing a beef in the dizzy gear dept, the gear still shoulda wore evenly. if the cam was bouncing back & forth .036" i'd expect the lifters would show evidence by being wrecked or on their way
there'll be phantoms, there'll be fires on the road... and the white man dancing
