I'll be the mug.

The one at the top is new, the bottom one is buggered

Don't know if solid or hyd

Re: know your cam?

Top one is new, bottom is used.
There's no way of us telling from the pics if hyd or solid.

Re: know your cam?

I can confirm that both of the articles are Cam Shafts. The one on top looks new, the one on the bottom looks used. Apart from that I'd need to see the cams up close and measure them to make a determination as to lift, ext.

What part numbers are on the cam bearing face, either end of the camshafts?

Re: know your cam?
