Oil pump gear looks like new

now the question...

Do you think it is possible that this timing issue is factory made?

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see anything wrong with the cam marks.

Always check them with the pinion mark pointing straight toward the middle of the #2 cam.

However, I do see wear on your oil pump drive gear. Look more closely.

Also, the nature of the wear on that gear is such that it'll look absolutely perfect in one area, and then 180 degrees from that spot you'll see it badly worn. So look all the way around.

But even in your picture, I can see the tooth starting to sharpen.
