You need to redegree the cam

If it actually is slipping though, you have much bigger problems

Degreeing a cam is not a job for a novice, even many 'pros' cannot do it. You need special tools and the ability to remove and reinstall the gear on the cam. Some big shops have a jig used to hold everything in alignment during the pressing process. Then they tack weld the gear to the shaft to keep it from moving again.
