A $10 cam? Make a paperweight out of it.

A GOOGLE search was pretty easy and took about 30 seconds. I found the companys web site on the very front page of the search. c-304-6-b doesn't show up but c-304-8-b does...

It's a big block Chevy cam

Call them and ask. IIRC George is there expert.. I wouldn't trust a $10 used cam, even tho CS cams are pretty good, and running a cam because it was $10 isn't good because it might not match your engine...

Cut your losses and buy a cam w/the specs you need, not some crapshoot like this.

If the cam is used it's not worth $10. The chances are very good that it will ruin a new set of lifters and chew itself up in the process, spreading metal all through the engine.

So the guy parted out the engine too? Even though it was apparently running? Seems strange. You can play with your $10 cam if you really want to but you would be wise to just buy a NEW cam and save any potential hassles. You can get NEW cam and lifter sets for right around $100 from Summit Racing.

If the guy you bought it from pulled it out of a running engine shouldn't you already know what engine it was for? If not, maybe you should ask the seller?

Do you even have an engine to put it in?

Either way, it's a $10 lump of iron.
