Hello! I found this old paper for the cam that's currently in my 327. Based on some of the info here, I am guessing it's an old General Kinetics grind, but I'm unsure. I know it was bought through Arcata Automotive (the local parts store/speed shop my mom worked at) in the early 2000s. They carried stuff from Motor Warehouse, and I believe stocked a lot of Speed Pro/Sealed Power parts... Looking in my Speed Pro book I can find a cam with the same duration @ 0.050, same lift, but the advertised duration is what makes me think General Kinetics. I have seen a post on another site about a GK cam with the same specs posted, but there was no more info on that thread regarding this cam. Does anyone out there recognize this? Maybe the layout of the card itself could be a clue? Thanks in advance for any help!!!

Might get more info (ID'ing numbers) off the actual cam....unfortunately it's still installed.

Maybe someone has those cam grind numbers/manufacturer off the top of their head? Seem pretty generic to me though

Don't go by advertised duration as every cam manufacturer has their own method of determining that. Match by .050 specs and lift. What are you trying to determine, the manufacturing source?

Thanks for the replies!!! I was mostly curious about the manufacturer. I'm also curious if anyone here runs a similar grind, and how it has performed. Right now this engine has an open plenum manifold on it (80s Holley Street Dominator) and has zip for low end... I just picked up an older Weiand Stealth to throw on it, I think that will be a much better match!

I ran a Weiand 7525 under a Q-Jet on a 305 with a 216/216 @ .050 cam and it had plenty of low-emd torque.
