Intake cam should have a notch on the end for the distributor. :)

One question, do both cams have the notch? it doesn't sound like they do. Mine both have notches :(

both cams have the same specs on my GE, so I'm assuming visually the lobes will be very very similar, doesn't the dizzy mesh with a gear on the one cam so the other cam wouldn't have that same gear right?

My head doesn't use a geared disty, it uses a slot just like discribed above. I believe I have two intake cams in mine for some reason.
