If I bought an engine sight unseen and felt that the seller was up front when I talked to him I would expect to get a running engine that had had reasonable oil pressure with no major signs of abuse. The fact that the cam lobes are slightly? scratch is part of the risk. As long as I did not feel that I had been grossly misled by the seller then I would take what I got. At 105k not many owners would have taken off the valve covers just to pass the time on a Saturday afternoon. The buyer should have NO reasonable expectation that the owner would know that the cam is scratched. All the buyer, in good fath, can do is present a product as described and 'caveat emptor'.
