    I've never seen any, you might try to measure some other common makes to see if a sub could be made but doubtful

    I thought I remember finding 5.7 cam bearings back when I built my engine years ago, but they were quite pricey so I didn't end up putting new ones in. It was something like $30 each instead of $30 for a set. Haven't looked in a long time though and not sure if the 6.1 shares a common size or not.

    Yes you can repair the cam tunnel . But if the block is toast , WTF . It takes a good auto machinist to line bore the saddles and use over size cam bearings or , my favorite, roller cam bearings .
