The C275 is prolly a date code (March 27, year ending in 5). The other number is gonna be hard to pin down, it doesn't look like any of the common cam maker's part numbers, IMO.

You can measure the base circle and subtract that from the lobe and see what the lift is. Do both an exhaust and intake lobe, maybe you'll get lucky and cross that to a cam. But w/o the duration numbers, it's a long shot.

You can degree the cam to get the duration and timing specs if you have a degree wheel and dial indicator.
