That isn't an OEM FORD part. The originals had cast raised characters, not cast recessed, or stamped. The STAR is just the mfg. TM. They tried to match the OEM FORD unit with the '3'. Originals had a '2' or a '3' cast raised. The manufacturer may have been licensed by FORD to use the p/n like that. Yes, a poorly machined cam bore -way off center, not necessarily a poor casting, and even more susceptible to questions. FORD would never allow that to pass QC.
