Identify my cam
« on: September 14, 2019, 05:41:20 PM »
Can anyone identify my cam for me? Can't find the cam card anymore. I removed the rear welch plug and took a photo of the end of the cam.

Motor is a 351W.

Thanks in advance

Yeh I thought the silicone was good too. They only used it once the plug was in place.

It is a nice drive-able street cam with a little bit of lump at idle. Can I ask how you guys found it as I wasn't sure which numbers were the serial numbers and what the other numbers meant.   

Thanks for your help guys

Edit: just searched the crane cam master catalogue and see the H286-2 is the part number. Thanks again guys.

I have one last question. Replacing the welch plug. Is it just a tolerance fit and gentle tap in with say a socket or is there another trick/way to make sure it seals properly?

It is an interference fit and drive in with appropriate size socket, old bearimg race etc etc.

Clean bore in block first and use bit of permatex aviation form a gasket on plug before installing.

Even with an interference fit fluids will invariably leak out (via capillary action)

 A little bit of deductive work, and google, the CR was a bit of a clue, possible Crane or Crow, the rest was matching code numbers,
 10 minutes tops........,
