The secret of the 115HP, 1380cc motors! Mini Mania with aid of Dema Elgin designed a series of cams some years ago! These cams are US made and are of unequalled consistency and quality.One of the designs was for a mid range camshaft that truly tries to please everyone. This cam has a 264 degree intake and a 268 degree exhaust duration and intake valve lift of .327" with an exhaust lift of .358". Elgin cams are not as cheap as some competitors, but we believe that the quality is worth it! Fits any 1275cc! . At TDC intake opens at 25 Deg . , and exhaust closes at 27 Deg . At BDC intake closes at 59 Deg , and exhaust opens at 61 Deg.  Valve clearance intake is .014" and  exhaust is .016 ".

NOTE: Pin drive cams will require sending in a suitable core for regrinding as these cams are becoming more and more scarce.
Finally getting around to rebuilding my 1275 motor and installing this cam which I bought from you years ago (not installed until now). Currently have stock rockers. Would this cam/motor benefit much from going to a 1.5 rocker set up? I'll install with Maniflow LCB header/exhaust and stock SU carbs
There are several factors involved when changing rocker ratios. I recommend this ARTICLE to help you make an informed decision.

Considerable information has been recorded about numerous aspects of the four stroke internal combustion engine. Nevertheless, only a small percentage of people really understand how it works and even fewer still know how to modify an engine to suit their needs. I will try to simplify this complex subject by discussing some basic principles that may be overlooked or misunderstood by the average person.
