The cam marked 630 measured 7.64 lift or near enough on all the lobes, x1.39 = 10.6196mm or 0.4180"

Is lift alone enough to identify these two? Is there a list of specs somewhere?
BMW specs.
308 has a lift of 9.4mm
336 has a lift of 10.68mm
284 has a lift of 8.62mm

Lucky you. #630 has the lift of a 336. An early one with a key drive on the OP is a rare thing......#921 is a 308.
