Post a closeup pic of the end of the cam with the gear removed, a pic showing the whole front of the cylinder head with the inside timing cover removed, and a pic of the back side of the cam gear. And when you take the inner cover off is the oil in between the head and inner cover or mostly on the front side of the inner cover

Forgot about this post so may be too late, but my recomendation is to replace the gear. Reason being is that if wear is significant then being off center(from the dowel) may cause you to throw a cam gear advance code, that looks like a few degrees to me.

Second is that because its mangled up like that it may prevent the cam gear from going on all the wayand being flush with the cam butt. in which case you will have oil pressure bleed back around the cam back to the head. if too much flow cam seal may not be handling it.

Now this is super critical, Feed of oil from cam gear is returned back through one of those 3 holes. If holes are not flush it MAY bleed back around cam and leak at cam seal because those two small gaps by cam seal are and/ or plugged but more importantly not designed to handle that much oil colume and thus build up pressure behind cam seal and spray

I second this. when I saw the video i thought there's no way that much oil could be coming out of the cam seal.. if you don't align the dowel of the cam shaft to the avcs cam gear, then there won't be any sort of seal.. and you'll possibly damage your cam gear when tightening down the cam gear (as it'll either warp the dowel or warp the mating surface of the back of the gear).. considering the cam gear is about 70-80 ft-lbs of torque. (22 + 45deg). Cam gear replacement definitely a good choice for the best seal.
