    Does anyone know if the Jetfire had a specific camshaft? The 72 parts book is the oldest I have and it only shows a cam listed for f-85. Not sure if it was listed that way because the Jetfire and Cutlass cams were discontinued by 72 or if all three engines had the same camshaft. If it is a Jetfire only cam does anyone have the part number? I would have thought the turbo engine would have had a smaller valve overlap.

    Maybe they were not thinking to much about turbo specific cam profiles yet?

    Hi Eric,
    1963 parts book shows all 61-63 cams the same.
