looking for opinions on this camshaft cap. The marks are also now on the camshaft as well. Is the cap itself the bearing material or is it impregnated on the cap surface and now it's worn through?

I have no clue about this and I'm thinking I was not clean enough on the install. Just another note the heads were bathed with the cams out when I got the heads done 30 000k ago and I do remember all the cap surfaces looked rough maybe from the cleaning solution eating the surfaces?

I'm doing the lash adjusters and replacing the rocker seal again with OEM parts this time because i can't seem to get the leaks sorted. Also I think I've used the wrong sealant under the caps so I'm revisiting them whic is how i exposed this new issue.

Can I get away with inserting the cam seals both ends with some sealant and fitting the caps or is it mandatory to tighten the caps and tap the seals in?

The bearing ,material is the cap , its conditioned that way. You are using DOCH cylinder heads i suspect? Well the caps are the same on both cylinder heads . Thing is tho , if you are taking one off the belt driven side on one cylinder head you will need to take the one on the opposite side of the other cylinder head. As the heads can be actually fitted to either bank just in a reversed position using the correct sides cams . Which is why on the opposed back the numbers and caps run in an opposite order as the front.
