Back to the question, how the late 336 are timed. PJ has the numbers? PJ?????

I'm afraid it is so long since I built the engine that I have lost and forgotten the figures!
I have an old piece of paper with some figures that I have written down and these give lobe centres of 95 inlet and 106.5 exhaust, but I cannot be sure where they came from. The opening and closing points I have written down add up to 280 degrees of duration which does not really add up to a sport cam.

I can see that when I have some time, I am going to have to get out the dial gauge and degree wheel and see what's happening inside my engine.
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.
