I may of mentioned this before,but do you really need a pair of 420 cams(inlet and exhaust) when using 1.625 i/l amd 1.4e/x,according to the formula the exhaust won't benefit????


if you're taking the head off make up(or have a machinist make-up 4,or 8,studs and fit them to the head,threading them just enough so the nylocks "bottom" just at the correct clearance for the thackerey washers,once locktighted-in you can forget the "lotus position"

You can lift the head and leave the block in the car - no problem.

With the QED 420 you will need their matching valve springs and
followers. If you have not done any other work to the engine you will
not see any improvement from these cams.
