It has much more duration and less valve lift than the 447 series engine cam of 1974-1983 (above right), they have a bushing in the cam center bored hole for the ignition governor rod from 1974-1979, then the factory switched from points ignition to a transistorized hall effect magnetic pickup crank trigger. The early cam has 34 teeth on the sprocket and is not a direct swap for the later motors with 36 teeth on the cam sprocket. Both cams run on double pairs of ball bearings in the head.
