Default Old Isky Camshaft

Has anyone out there ever used the old Isky 1007B camshaft before. This would be for my street F1. I have the specs on it, but wanted someone with real experience with this cam, 8BA motor, before I buy NOS Camshaft. Lumpy idle ???? Hope so ! Low end, vacuum issues ??? Running an A/T with a loose convertor, if the idle has to be set higher than normal, that should stop truck from wanting to creep in gear. Any help appreciated. Also, what does anyone know or remember about specs for this cam ? I was told 375" lift, 2 56 duration, but I saw on the Reds Headers site that Isky started making this cam again, but it's rated at 355" lift ? ???????? Thank you !

The 1007B is one of my best selling cams.
It has a slight lope to the idle but should be ok with an automatic transmission.

The specs are:
Isky 1007B

Intake 20/55
Exhaust 60/15
Lift .365
Duration 260
In. Cl. .012
Ex. Cl. .014
Slightly lopey idle.

These specs are from a new cam in 1954.

Great cam since you already have it. Up there close to a KiWi-L100 that’s the opinion of those that have actually used both.
Enjoy.
Cheers

Excellent cam, have used it in several builds. Like all Long cams likes compression.
