there's stuff with diffrent part numbers but are the same thing too so for that you'd probably have to ask someone who's tried it or knows those engines very well

Different lift or different duration would make it have a different part number.

The part might fit physically but if the cam has a different cut it can greatly affect performance.

Sometimes for the better, most times for the worst.

I'm pretty sure from all my playing with XL600's that the whole engine looks very similar but all the parts are slightly smaller on the 350's.  If the rocker cover gasket #'s are different then I think the cams would be different. The older 250 and 500 cams would swap (1978-1981)  But I'm pretty sure that's a no go on the 350-600
