Re: Setting up the engine with a performance cam

It turns out I was worrying about nothing. I removed the rocker shaft and lifted the followers one by one as high as they’d go and then drew the cam out, I oiled my original S cam and slid it straight back in with no trouble. Once it was home I tapped the followers with a screwdriver and they slid b...

Re: Setting up the engine with a performance cam

Yeah that’s the obstacle I’m pondering on.

I thought maybe keeping the followers lifted via telescopic magnets secured to a length of all-thread but if one drops while I’ve got the cam out then I’d be reduced to removing the sump to find it.

Re: Setting up the engine with a performance cam

Thanks for the info, it’s a Holbay cam and after digging out the details I’ve found that it is profiled to run best in a 2000 engine with the shorter inlet. I have an early 2000 engine that I plan to rebuild for GAR 317C so I could use it in that along with electronic ignition and fuel injection. In...

There was a plan for an engine swap from a non triumph donor but that wouldn’t happen until the end of next summer at the earliest. I’...

Re: Setting up the engine with a performance cam

Hi Alec This cam is a holbay/ Carlow engineering cam. What I’ve done so far is port-matched the cylinder head to the exhaust manifold which is a TR6 twin outlet manifold coupled to twin SS straight through exhausts. Other then that and the cam there’s no other mods to it. What sort of distributor wo...

Setting up the engine with a performance cam

Hi guys I recently fitted a newly acquired cam into my 2500s engine and I've not been able to set it up. It's has a 320 degree duration and a valve lift 1.52..... I spent a while struggling to get it to run half smoothly and went through the usual checks of setting the rockers and the distributed ti...

Re: Interior Swap

Suppose you could always cut the dash frame out of the mk1? You’d only have to hang the brackets for the mk2 dash then I’d imagine?

Has anyone done this conversion before?

Re: Mk2 2500 floor grommets

That makes sense but why so late in production?
