Default Head & cam survival

I recently received a core 530 head that I planned on having rebuilt for when I do my +t swap. Upon taking out the cam I noticed the #5 journal was pretty beat up. Should I just polish this and move on with life or find another core? Also, can anyone identify this cam? definitely looks aftermarket, but I can't find anything on it. TIA



These are the only markings on the cam that I can find.

If it's a factory cam, the letter is stamped on the end with the slots, maybe try to clean the end with some brake clean. Head looks fubar but I'm not an expert by any means.

On my aftermarket cams they still write what it is on the end with the slot.

I've been up and down this cam many times, but nothing stands out to identify it.

At least you know it is an aftermarket cam then. Because the factory ones would always have a marking on the end. If you really want to know you have to measure it i guess.

I see a "V" on that cam, Is every one else blind? Or is it just me?

I like your optimism, but that's just a reflection. There is absolutely nothing engraved on the back of the cam.

It looks as if you will have to do it the hard way. V-Block, Degree Wheel, Dial Indicator.
Don't forget to take incremental duration measurements.

OHH.. And don't let me take the readings.....
