Hey Daddy, I've read your other replies-if you don't like the question,don't "roll your eyes" . The only stupid question is the one not asked. Some of the answers are stupid but that can't be helped. People need to remember that they should talk to people on HERE just as if they were actually standing in front of them. I'm sorry Stephane but I don't have an answer for you. I hope someone CAN help you.

Hey, you don't like it, don't read my replies. I am tired of posers coming on here, telling us about their monster motors, plans to build 850 hp motors, then asking us to identify the cam in his motor. It's a joke.

No, it's not in my engine...one of my friend have a 76 monte-carlo with a small block chevy 1994 (1 piece rear maine seal)....he destroy one main rod on crankshaft...and we open the engine..and find this camshaft...that's why I was asked information about this camshaft....

It's for a 383, with edelbrock cylinder head.....we need to figure out if we can put more power on the block without paid to much $$$$$

I agree, thats why I don't answer them. You should do the same instead of making yourself look bad. I don't know you and you don't know me and together we don't have any idea what the other REALLY knows. Learn to abstain and try a lil patience. Would you berate a 5 yr old and roll your eyes because he didn't know the answer to a problem? What is simple to you or possibly me might not be so simple to someone else. Just sayin and I don't mean to offend anyone.

There are a lot of guys running hellacious engines that they know every part that went in, etc. Does not mean they built it, though.

Rat, I would wonder why you don't simply start by comparing the base circle to the max lobe sizes of the intake and exhaust to get lift figures to work with. If you got a figure in the low to mid 0.4" range, you'd know it was a mild- possibly stock- cam.

If it's still in a short block you could whip out your degree wheel and pointer, dial indicator and piston stop and plot the cam duration-to-lift and use those figures to find the exact grind.

But I will say those numbers do not look like a performance cam's ID markings- they look like an OEM cam ID to me.

Big testosterone levels in this thread LOL

Crane had some SBC hydro roller cams that had 4714 stamped in the end followed by a 1 or 2 letter suffix, seem to remember seeing one that had 4714YN stamped in it. Can't remember anything more about it.

The image below is an LS cam from Crane, hydro roller:



This doesn't mean they don't make cams w/the numbers stamped into them- just that etched is what I see far more of, from aftermarket cam companies.

Kind of off topic, but Ratoflic, you have had at least four different threads asking for information on cams that you only have the numbers from the end of the cam- BBF, BBC, and two SBC. What gives?
