Help me identify this no name cam?!

alright one of my close friends gave me a ton of assorted SBC parts included with it is a camshaft (still new but wrapped in wax paper not in original box) if tied to find a grind number or part number on it i can only find a few different markings that dont add to anything to me, but ill give you guys the markings on it and see what you can make of it, id like to know the specs of the cam to see if i can put it to use. alright the markings are as follows...


starting from the front right behind the fuel pump lobe its marked "EP1"

going further back between the 4th cam lobe and the 2nd bearing surface its marked "D3" and on the other side of the cam between the same lobes its marked "C3"

next between the 2nd bearing surface and the 5th cam lobe its marked "C2" and on the other side its marked "26"

and finally marked between the 4th bearing surface and the 13th am lobe its marked "CWC"

im stumped this seems like very little info to me, let me know guys

I don't have a clue if this related or anything, but take a look at this:

Maybe you could ask Nova if he figured anything out.

The epi and the cwc markings are the cam core makers the other markings i,am not sure of maybe chris straub will chime in since he use to work for a cam co.You could slip into a block and check your lift and other points with a dial indicator or send it to a shop that has a cam doctor.
