I am rebuilding my 1959 283 (currently 301)  I bought the engine last year from the estate of a person who had passed away, so I can't ask him any questions.
I am trying to identify the camshaft that is in the engine.  The numbers on the camshaft are  J28   GM 9 9  3736098.
I have not been able to find the number 3736098.
Does anyone know what it is, or where I may research further?
ANY HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED!

try posting on www.hotrodders.com     lots of old timers there, they might be able to help you. if its a solid lifter unit, its a good bet its the duntov 30-30 piece used in fuel injected vettes and 302 Z/28 engines. good luck to you-have a good one!
