Looks like Comp Cams by the CC. The numbers don't show up in the lobes in my catalog.

I'd put it in a block and MEASURE it, then you'll know.

Rick thinks it's a Comp Cams number so why not give them a call and see. Lots of cams are "special grinds" so that may not be an off the shelf cam. That would explain the number not showing up anywhere.

FYI, I've got two roller cams for my SBC and BOTH are custom grinds.

You can tell the lash ramp by using a degree wheel and a dial indicator on a lifter. Rotate the engine around until just before the lifter is starting to move and take lifter rise readings every 2 degrees. You will see a consistent velocity (same lift change each 2 degrees) for a while before it takes off lifting much quicker. That slower constant velocity is the lash ramp and the amount of that x rocker ratio is the max lash you should ever use. Other than that it is a try it and see what the engine wants thing.

More than likely the recommended lash was in the .020 - .026" range.
