Ford cam ID ???
Trying to get my engine together.
Had bought what I was told was a
stock HO crate motor takeout cam.
Installed it, tried to set the valves
by setting #1 at TDC then going thru
a number of valves by the Ford book.
Trouble is, after doing #1 I & E, it said
to do #4 E, but the valve is part way
open! Got to looking, and the cam
seems to be the 289/302 firing order
and not the 302HO/351 firing order.
Must be a 302 pickup roller motor cam, from what I've read, they kept the 289/302 firing order.
Took it back out, trying to find some
numbers. It's got a yellow paint
stripe by the gear (signifying roller cam, same color as the distrib gear for roller cam), and on the back end
it's got "123" and what looks like
"70-60" or maybe "10-60".
How would I identify a Ford stock
5.0 HO roller cam by looking at it?
Aren't there part #'s or a color
code or SOMETHING!!??
