Essex V6 Camshaft

Postby warriorsage » Mon Nov 06, 2017 5:54 pm

I've stripped down the Essex V6 in my Capri for a rebuild and I'm trying to identify the camshaft, which doesn't appear to be standard.

The heads are stage 2 with bigger inlet and I wonder if the camshaft was changed at the same time.

Does anyone know how to identify it from the markings as below?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Not one I have seen before. Last time I rebuilt a 3.0 V6, I used a V63 Cam from Burton Power. With larger inlets, and modded exhausts, it worked really well, especially in overtaking mid-range.
