Default Cam ware? Pic inside

Well I have a nasty tap in my bottom end. One mechanic said lifters one said front rod bearing skated. So I took my cam cover off to inspect.. And I noticed the bigger can gear seemed to have a groove/lip worn into it. And its not a even lip around it. I slid in the cover and there is a good bit of up and down movement. I also noticed when verything was still together and it was running the little gold timing wheel was wobling a little bit. What do y'all think?

What does the bushing in the cam cover look like? Is it loose?

Wow! There seems to be wear on the timing gear from it thrusting into the cam cover. The way the wear groove on the bearing surface looks like the cover is out of alignment
