How to Identify a Crane Cam

138

Crane is a popular aftermarket producer of engine camshafts, which are used to actuate valves in engines. Camshafts vary based on the design and placement of lobes on the shaft, thus properly identifying a camshaft is critical to assure compatibility with your engine.

Step 1

Examine both ends of the camshaft. The end of the camshaft will be embossed with a two-digit engine prefix code, a grind number, and the series name of the camshaft. These three pieces of information will allow a consumer to identify the specifics of a given camshaft. Some Crane camshafts may have information on both ends of the camshaft.
