    wrong cam or bigger problems?

    hi all... so when i pulled my intake to redo the seal i noticed that the cam looked like it was not spaced right. some of the lifters were centered, sum were to far forward and sum to far to the rear. is it possable its the wrong cam? sum of the lifters were were almost half way off the lobe. the motor runs ok except a mid thottle dear spot witch i figure is the carb and a random miss while idling. should i b woried???

    What kind of a car are you talking about; year, make, model, engine displacement?

    Cam lobes are off center with the lifters so the lifters will rotate and even out the wear.
