i'm not sure of the stresses in the lobe. don't know if there is bending stress, maybe torsion stress, maybe shear.

I think the force from the axle and from the wall apply compression and bensing stresses but maybe more stresses the i can miss.
How can you be confident knowing how to calculate stresses without even knowing whether they exist or not.

It is quite clearly that you have little understanding of how cams operate and how to resolve forces adequately.

This is all engineering 101. If you can't figure this out then are you really doing the right course?

The basic analysis of an SLCD is relatively easy and you can have a look at a comprehensive variety of stresses, shear, compression, tension. Buckling can also come into it too. But all this your should be able work out yourself.
