Default Dry Camshaft Gear

My camshaft gear striped, and I've read that is not uncommon. It looks like a replacement 'fiber' type. I say replaced, because the connector bolt has chisel marks where someone has removed it in the past. My problem is that the gear seems very dry. I've tried to understand the oiling diagram attached, and it seems like the gear should be very well oiled. I took off the valve chamber drain pipe, and I see fresh oil in it, so I assumed my pump is working well. I've just been letting the engine idle for the past few weeks, not taking it on the road, so I wonder if the 'tilt' of the engine to the rear is keeping oil from spreading far enough forward....

Any ideas?
