    Inlet cam, Exhaust cam???

    Ok so i removed the two cams from a spare Z18XE head i had and didn't take note which was removed from where. I now have no idea which is the inlet and which is the exhasut cam.

    I've looked on EPC and the parts are listed as:
    Inlet - 9158623
    Exhaust - 9158629

    I've had the cams in the parts washer so i culd check for any markings on them, but they are labelled up identically - 76 83 R90 400 230

    Can anyone shed any light please?

    ive got some here i think they are differant as if you look on the end of theshaft where the pulley fits the locating pin is slightly differant from memory also if you look closly there are a few differant numbers and markings along it

    but realisticly im of no use cus im not sure which one is which but im prettty sure they are differant
