Oil groove in cam shaft

Some of you motor gurus I have a question about the oil grooves in the cam shafts, I have like 3 sets of cam shafts for the v-twin 750 and on the end opposite of the timing gear I have noticed that some of them have a hole and oil groove on that end where it sets in the head and some of them are smooth with no oil hole, can anybody tell me why. I looked at 2 sets from Webb on the 1st set one had the groove and one didn't and on the second set neither had it ??????

They added a oiling groove there in the later years... not sure how late but only on the later models will you find it. Just helps to get oil into that journal so you don't have oiling problems but you really don't see a problem with the old style either.
