Mark,
It sounds to me like the cam bearings may be going out in it. That was a sure
fire bet when the pulled my old 5.0 apart. I had the same problems before my
engine went. Thats what they found to be the problem.

Nope.. it isn't the cam bearings..  my engine was torn down and rebuilt
about 20k miles ago...  Where it had all new fresh everything.. cam,
bearings, etc.  If it was the cam bearings, there would likely be an eratic
idle...
which I do have.. it dances all over the place..  but the engine is totally
fresh... I built everything myself, so I know whats gone into it..
Thanks though, I probley should tear it down and look I guess eh? :)
Mark

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but...

Sounds like the motor has alot of miles on it.  High mileage motors lose oil
pressure around the cam and crank bearings once the oil has warmed up and
thinned out.  A heavier oil or maybe STP might help for a little while, but
ultimately the solution is a rebuild - if I've diagnosed the problem
correctly.
