You mean your car is 420sel, I hope some one has checked the oil tubes when they were working on the cam shaft and lifters. There are oiler tubes, one on each side, which eithe brake or block and do not provide the oil lubrication to the cam shaft. This is very typical on these cars, very inexpensive (oiler kit US $4.68 from this site) and very easy to do. Juso pop up the valve cover and take the tubes out (carefully they are usually very britle).
Let us know, if this job is done or not.
If it is done, then I can explore some other possibilities, but If this was not done, this might be your problem.

Good luck.
