Camshaft ID

Hi Folks, can anyone help identify these random camshafts?
I suspect they're pretty standard as the lift measures around.220"
One has JM252 marked on the end and looks like a 202 cam that's been reground.
The other is a non 202 I suspect because it doesn't have the cut outs. It has an S stamped at the end.
Be nice if it was an original 186S cam but I have no idea.
Thanks Dave

No idea, but that's very low lift. Definitely in the range of standard to maybe tow cam at best? Not sure... For example, the aftermarket cam I have in old 202's running 445thou lift. And that being said, it's a good cam for what I do, but plenty of people have cams with much higher lift.

I'd rather drive my old holden than a new ford!

And yes, the other cam that doesn't have cut-outs I'm sure is designed for a smaller stroked engine ie. 173, 186. From memory, the ones with cutouts on them are 202 cams. extra clearance for the crank or something....
