My camshafts for my 1750 have gotten slightly pitted (1mm pits far apart) from storage since disassembly many years ago. I have found threads on pitted lobes, but none on the bearing surface. Only the rear surfaces are pitted (towards the firewall), the other 4 + lobes are fine. Can they be used, or would I risk damaging the cylinder head ++?

You have pictures? Pits on the lobes are more worrisome than on the bearing surface; they lead to tappet damage, which creates more lobe damage, in a vicious spiral. Pictures would help diagnose.
