1st one is an Engle K8, they changed to the FK designation many years ago, I believe the specs are slightly different on the old grind, great cam. If i remember correctly .530 lift with 1.4's 308 duration with about 260 @.050, have one in my motor. No idea on the unmarked one, only way to tell is to mock it up in and check it with a degree wheel

You can get an idea of the lift on the unmarked cam by measuring the widest part of the lobe and the smallest part then subtract. You would also need to multiply by your rocker ratio if you want the lift at the valve. I would just use The stock 1.1:1 ratio for that.
