    Ok so the deal is I have a crane cam that I pulled out of a sbc yesterday. I'm trying to find the specs on it so I can decide whether to get a new cam or just use this one. It still looks brand new, but there is a date stamped on it that read 11-12-96.

    Me and a buddy looked forever last night trying to find them, but was unsuccessful. I'm wondering if anyone else can help find the specs for me.

    Here are all numbers stamped on the cam.

    CR 760

    119306 965030
    or last set of digits may read 965A30

    It's kinda hard to tell.

    Also on the cam itself there is a number that is 1539...it's in between the lobes.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Have you tried call crane cams to see if they can help you decipher it?

    They were bought by S&S Cycle

    just measure it....if you have some simple tools you can get close enough..we have done it several times on "custom builder" engines that have ground the numbers off.....

    Measure it before you make that decision based on what some random person posts on a forum.

    Crane is out of business now so calling them won't do any good.

    Hi Stenny, your CR760 is the 967601, with the same specs as listed in post #7. Crane is very much in business. The toll-free tech line is 866-388-5120. Regards, Chase
