Is this SBC cam solid or hydraulic?

Hi I got this cam with a jet boat 305 engine I brought (that was in parts and this cam was included as a spare). It's a flat tappet cam however I'm sure the seller told me it was a solid. But I'm thinking it is hydraulic because the spec sheet has 0.0 for the valve clearances on it? It's a custom ground cam made here in New Zealand so parts books probably won't help.

Please have a look at spec sheet and tell me what you think.

"0.000" hydraulic. Make sure what's stamped onto the rear of the cam matches with the paperwork. Found a cam in the Crane catalog with nearly identical specs...
operating range 1800-5600
Good low and mid range torque and hp, good idle, daily useage and off road, towing, performance and fuel efficiency. Light pleasure and ski boats, including jet boats. 2600 to 3000 cruise rpm's. 8.75 to 10.75 static compression ratio advised.

Thanks very much tech inspector

I will check that. I thought it must have meant it's hydraulic, but I'm selling it and I don't want to mislead any one.
