    Throw a caliper on a few lobes and see what it measures for lift.

      That is not a Chrysler Purple Shaft camshaft. They don’t have numbers like that. Kim

      I have no doubt that you’re right. On another post on FABO I saw the number between the lobes was ‘part’ number. That was what I searched “1136 camshaft”. I can not tell who the manufacturer is.

      Also most mopar cams have some purple paint between the lobes. Another characteristic is that most mopar cams are bare shiny metal not coated with black coating. Early mopar cams did though.

        Check the front of the cam on the front of the first bearing journal for any markings if you have not done so yet.
