Babe Erson Cam---Please Help!

Anyone know about Babe Erson Cams?
I bought a fresh SBC 383 at a Goodguys swap meet that had sat around awhile.
Pulled the pan to make sure it was a stroker and pulled
the cam. It was stamped BABE. I wrote down the numbers
and put it away for safe keeping and of course can't find it!

**Just found the note with the marking information!!!!
BABE 107-6 B04 887
That's all that was stamped on the cam.

Babe was Sigs' brother, Had a shop in So. Calif. and died several years ago. I called Erson cams and that's all the info they had.
I'd like to know what the numbers mean!

Find a shop that has a Cam Doctor Camshaft lobe profile measurement tool.

It will generate a readout on the camshaft specs you want to know.

Late to the party

Steve Long - Steve Long Racing Cams - former co-worker / employee of Babe's took over Babe's shop when Babe passed . . . at least that's what Steve told me when I tried to follow up with Babe some time ago. Steve's shop is at 119 North Maple St., Suite H, Corona, CA. Phone is (951) 273-0816. Maybe he can ID that cam . . . or you already got that info.

Never too late!

Hey, thanks for the info. I called Steves' shop and did not reach him.
I will follow up because I still have no info on this cam.
Thanks again!
