    Greetings

    I was wondering if I could get some help identifying my cam. It has the ZE code next to the first lobe however, I'm not sure whether it's a ford racing cam or stock. I measured the lobe height and it comes out to 1.72" and width of 1.46. I understand the formula is (height - width) equals a .260 duration then Multiplying the duration by the rockers (1.6) gets a lift of .416?

    Is the camshaft out of the engine for starters? Many manufacturers stamp their part numbers on the end of the camshaft at the rear of the engine, or on the shaft area itself, between the cam lobes.

    My stock cam has those letters. I just looked at it.

    I'm curious as to all of the mystery cams in the world, not to hijack or anything but how many people have random unlabeled cams floating around the garage? I for one is not a fan of putting anything "mystery cam" in any of my engines....

    The back of the cam has the following
    "1207"
    Additionally, its hard to read but it looks like "123"
