Post How to I.D. an aftermarket cam?

Am I right in assuming that if a cam has the gear riveted vs. screwed onto it, that it is a factory cam?

In practice, you could remove the oil pump. See if there are rivits or screws and that would determine if the cam is an aftermarket?

Thanks if anyone knows for sure.

This winter while rebuilding my 2.0, I found that Elgin had reground my cam (P.O.). This one had the rivits but Elgin's name was stamped by the oil pump drive spot. I have also seen VW regrinds with the same part numbers.
