went for 1301518 in the end which are on solid lifters , roughly 4 to 8 thou rev wise if ive worked it out right , yes i thought that originally got to be somewhere near xe power, give it a go anyway in too deep now lol , never had massive power cars anyway so it will do ..

It would have been them or the 519 cams that I'd have gone for,,, I've never been that greedy with cam duration. Looking forward to seeing the results

well painfully slow progress at the moment , family over the hols , bad knee playing up again , and loads of other excuses , took head to the engine shop friday for shiming up , could see by the guys face and his list of excuses he didnt want to do it so have a go myself will just take a little longer , started with some different thickness washers to get a rough idea , shim is like a top hat which fits upside down on the bucket , really freaked the bloke out , tad unuseual apparently " not the way we do it boy " was his best remark ,all measured roughly now just need to get the final measurements to order .
