I have several camshafts with no numbers stamped on, from the 70s/80s. I have no idea what Mk they are. Has anyone got photos of Mk1, 2 and 3 cam profiles that I can use to guesstimate what Mks I've got?

I would think that MK1 & MK3 cams look very similar to the eye. Sorry, no "help" other than that.

Hello Howard, Can't seem to get a photo on today, The mk2 is 30mm from base circle to point, mk1 is 29mm, +- a nats !! The mk2 has a seeable flat on the closing side, The mk1 looks pointy Cheers Bill.

Thanks Bill, Probably best if I don't find hot cams, I'm about to start taking my Comet apart for a look inside and tidy up, and I'm trying to resist tweaking it.

I've also discovered where my racing Comet has been hiding, maybe the new owner will let me borrow it for the vintage track day next year.
