Yes its in great shape still. I just wont need it anymore after i get my BIGGER cam! and dont want it to sit around and collect dust. I figure if someone wants a good cam at a used price then might as well pass it on.

Back in the 60's, 70's and 80's it was not unusual to see used cams,rods and cranks for sell in speed shops. Today you don't see that as much of that happening but it still happens. Like machine shops around town. Use to buy used parts before I was able to afford new. Always had them check out at a machine shop.
