thats like asking your buddy to guess the girl at the bars **************

what im tryin to say is, you need to pull the timing cover off/ timing set/ and read the numbers on the cam. this way you can find out the specs of the came in there.

that'll help out tremendously.

other wise, just like your buddy at the bar he'll just sit there and wonder all night about miss purdies***********

My two cents, if you have the knowledge to figure out the following. Also, I'd tear the whole thing down and check everything over.
It would suck suck suck if you had everything installed, fired it up, and had a bad cylinder.

Use a camshaft degree wheel to get your specs if you don't want to tear it down. Comp Cams website has a section that explains degreeing a cam. You can get your advertised, .050, intake centerline, and lift that way. Some camshafts have the grind number in the back, so you may have to pull it to read it, regardless. You'll have to do a little research and reading to get it figured out.

Need cheap tools?

Search "camshaft degree wheel" using the image setting on your favorite search engine, and download it. Buy a piece of galvanized sheet metal from wherever, cut it with tin snips, drill hole, glue printed wheel on it, good to go. You'll have to beg, borrow, or steel a dial indicator though. A cheap rod stretch gauge will work for what you're doing as well. The dial is usually held in with a set screw. It'll get you within .001.

If you've got enough backyard skills, you can probably pull this off. If not, check the cam numbers and go from there.

Good luck!
