Question Compatibility: Tecumseh HMSK80 vs LH358SA camshaft

Old engine is a Tecumseh HMSK80 8HP with dual-shaft output.

Replacement engine is a Tecumseh LH358SA 10.5 HP with single-shaft output.

I am wanting to convert the LH358SA to dual-shaft output.

Are the camshafts compatible between these two engines? Part numbers are different (36655 vs 35375) but I can't determine if this is just for the provision of the second output shaft or if the cam & timing is different.

Coming back around to this post to thank Jackmels. I was able to change the camshaft from the HMSK80 8HP into the LH358SA and get a running engine. (First pull!) Along with swapping the sump cover, this gave me the dual-shaft setup that I needed.
