Would anyone be able to decipher what type of cam I currently have? I've looked through countless pages but came up with nothing. The markings are:

Butt end of shaft: K MP
Along the shaft: CWC 29 J3 C6 D6 EP1
(picture attached)

I believe it was originally in a late 70's Monte Carlo, and the cylinders were bored to .030.

If it helps, it was installed in a 350 2-bolt block with Chevy Corvette 327 250 HP heads (Casting is 3795896), and a 1969 2 Barrel SBC Intake 3916313.


There's a good chance the cam is a stock or stock replacement stick. Prolly around 0.390" to 0.410" lift and duration @ 0.050" lift under 200 degrees. If you have a caliper, subtract the smallest part of the lobe (base circle) from the biggest part of the lobe, then multiply that number by 1.5 (rocker ratio). The result is the valve lift.

The markings along the length of the shaft are the foundry (CWC) and various factory markings, could be the furnace or mold ID, date code, etc.
