Default Can someone help me ID this cam?

It is supposed to be a McKellar grind but I cannot verify that claim. Would it have any value in my supercharged 389 SD retro project?? I've decided to take everyone's advice and use the 306 heads.

It's hard to make out the numbers...but I think it's a solid verison of the Ram Air 1V cam...not 100 % sure.

Default McKellar

That is a McKellar #8 cam originally for a 389. It is very close in specs to the famous #10. I recently installed one in my 65 GTO. It is solid lifter. See cams down at the bottom of this list.
