If it's a flat tappet cam, it's junk. Use it for a doorstop. Once the cam has been run in a motor, it is broken in for that motor only and the tappets that it was broken in on only. Running a used flat tappet cam is asking for trouble.

agree there.. I would not install a used cam in a performance engine, but if this cam were to be used in a beater engine for car or truck for a grocery getter than by all means use it...
