hey all, i was at the wreckers yesterday and as i was getting a trans cooler i looked in the engine bay to see if i needed anything, the head was missing but the cam was left up on the cowling panel, for some reason i picked it up and seen R418 stamped on the end of the cam.

thinking only regrinds or aftermarket cams get stamped i grabbed it but i have no idea what it is. anyone have ANY idea who might have made it?

Its not one of my cams, my markings were done with an engraver. They look like standard markings to me.
