    Default Cam journal damage

    https://photos.app.goo.gl/3fTcQJfsrKlXh7OV2
    I bought a car with some head damage but I history any idea what might have caused this damage. It does not look sludgy and no other journals have damage. Would putting the cam caps wrong cause this?
    Thanks

    I would say very poor maintenance, look how black the walls are.
