Yes mate VWHERITAGE said it would be fine to use stock lifters with the engle 110 cam.Sorry, but it's heritage who said using stock lifters with that cam would be OK when it isn't. Try find a scat c25 and matching scat lifters for the next build.
The case has only just been line bored and the crank was done at the same time.I've re-used cranks with light marks on that pulley end crank journal, and they've been fine (in stock spec engines).
If in doubt, and the crank is stock, you could get it reground. If you are getting the case align bored it will need oversize main bearings anyway, and they are the same price for stock or reground crank.
OK looking online now to see what to do. I have learnt my lesson now and will never reuse stock lifters again on a performance camYou can polish the crankshaft journals to a mirror finish yourself.
There are loads of guides on you tube, on how it is done.
Regarding the cam – lifters.
I have just taken two engines apart and the lifters in both were worn and pitted.
If you have used the old lifters, and they have already been worn. A higher lift cam and stiffer springs would probably have been a issue, and could have resulted in what you have experienced.

This oneI always use Millers competition running in oil to do the cam-burn, it's high in zinc to complete the hardening process. Not had a problem yet but there is always the first time!
So were they New stock lifters or the old original lifters ?Yes mate VWHERITAGE said it would be fine to use stock lifters with the engle 110 cam.
Ok, I'd do as DK Bug said and polish the crank journalsThe case has only just been line bored and the crank was done at the same time.
The case is 0.5mm over size, the crank is 0.5mm under size and the thrust was cut by 1mm
