Camshafts - March 2002
But in the UK in the 1960s thr choice was very limited, for example 10106 Veloce camshafts could be used to modify a standard 1300 engine, or 10121 'SS' camshafts for the 1600, although the latter tended to be peaky and lobe life extremely short. There were alternatives, for instance at Rob Walkers' famous Corsley Garage, where I worked in the 1960s, we used David Newman shafts which were ground to, believe it or not, Lotus profiles---these only really worked well at high rpm and, life all reground camshafts came with that age-old headache of requiring especially made thick adjusting shims. Furthermore, as is again always the case with reground camshafts, cam follower (bucket) life was shortened considerably.
