Camshaft noise

Hello all,

1972, 250

If I have a Camshaft with a worn lobe 1. Is this the source of the tapping noise I am hearing, and 2. If I unclog the oil tube so that it was getting oil, would the noise go away?

I know, Im reaching here.

If the lobe is worn you need a new cam. It will degrade rapidly after it starts wearing. No easy fixes here.
