OK... did we ever determine your engine number ?
I think for Non Turbo there are just two cams available to you..
To engine 085945
and AFTER that number...

You may have been reading a post on the chilled cams,etc in a Turbo discussion...
These two listed are cheap compared to what I thought they would cost..... like $140 and $160.....

Oops, I guess I had forgotten to post those numbers back....thought I had,lol.
The stamped one under #5 glow is 617 912 10 194 955, the cast ones by the IP are R 617 011 09 01, and then under that one is cast 30F 83

Shingletown is in northern California, so its a little ways off,lol.
What year is the assy you have?

I am no mechanic But after researching the 1979-1980-81 Camshaft. Here is what I found. Engine #085945 is a 1979 Camshaft. $209.00 in the Performance Parts Catalog. Engine # 085946 is a 1980 Camshaft. $175.00 in the Performance Parts Catalog...$180.00 on tht web-site. The latest MB part # for the later camshaft is 617 051 1101. An ******** actual Mercedes Parts website at discount prices later camshaft price is $199.00, Regular MB price for this later camshaft is $420.00. I have the later model camshaft on my car. The journals should measure 48.92mm-48.95mm on the later camshaft. My car has 617 011 09 01 cast beside the IP.

Here are some questions which come to mind....

Is the later cam able to be used as an ' upgrade' for the earlier cam.... perhaps by simply using some of the rear cam towers from a later model head ?

I think this is the case with the ' uprated' 240 cam and engine ...but I don't know if that applies to the 617 non turbo.

Mine was for a 78 616 (Early) but the price woulda been the same, the guy pointed to a big room full of MB engines and said "take any cam you like"

I musta been through Shingletown on the way to Mt Lassen a few years ago.

No, all my MBs are 240Ds (except for one 300D parts car) The non turbo 617 is more or less a 616 with an extra cylinder
