do you have a micrometer? 


i forget if there is an equation to get the profile but i remember it being really easy 







Carefully measure the widest and smallest part of a cam lobe with some cheap digital calipers....about 10 bucks.
Subtract one from the other, multiply that by 1.48 = lift

Here's an example
1.542-1.217 = .325 x 1.48= .481 lift.
