CAMSHAFT CODE 11 and my timing: what's the deal?

hey all-

biodiesel300td came over yesterday, and we did some investigations in my smoking wagon.

while measuring timing chain stretch, we noticed my '85 wagon has code "11" on the camshaft, and i can't find specs on that code anywhere that'll tell me degree rating for it.

i know specs for the 617.952 with code '05' is 11 for a used chain (which would mean i have 4 stretch), but can anyone confirm that's the case with a camshaft code 11?

incidentally, the chain looked pretty darned good- better than any of us would have imagined for a chain that supposedly has 400,000 miles on it. measuring stretch with a dial indicator (twice) gave us successive readings at the balancer of 15, which, per the "05" camshaft code would mean i have 4 stretch. we tried to verify the results by doing a reading off the cam timing alignment marks, but got a resulting 7 at the balancer...

7 degrees sounds more like an engine with +400K even with good care.

i know...i can't imagine there'd only be 4 degrees with 400k. (that's why we measured twice , and also why i'm trying to find out if CAM CODE 11 has different specs, which would make that stretch math different.)

ANYBODY know specs on camshaft?
