i have replaced the headgasket, and while it was off i looked at the CAM and noticed that the number markings on it have been changed.
it reads

94DT 62 50 AC 9

the letters in bold are the ones that look as if it the original has been grinded off and they have been stamped using a metal stamp.

Always one in the crowd :?

It was quite strange of Tickford, but some cams came with the T and C cast into the cam. And some of them came as you have found, with the 2 existing letters grinded off and a T and C engraved on the thing.

I've always wondered if there manual and auto EF XR6 tickford cams.

I was told it was a wade cam,

i thought it was a bit strange that the T was grounds off and then stamped. seems a bit cheap from factory :D

do after market cam grinders mark their cams in anyway ?

Wade will stamp the profile number either on the rear face of the cam, or the face where the cam sprocket slides onto.

Normally its on the rear face.
