Choosing The Right Timing Set For Your Engine
Why is a camshaft like the heater in your house?
Created: February 25, 2014
Camshaft selection can be as complicated as you like, but for the ultimate performance, even if that means best gas mileage requires that you consider the entire envelope that the camshaft will work within. Non-technical issues such as intended application (street, race, milage or??), budget, expected RPM range, etc must be considered along with technical things like compression ratio, Cylinder head and valve sizes, exhaust system, carburetion, etc.
Camshaft Theory by Elgin
Created: January 28, 2006
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.
Who is Kent Camshafts
Created: January 27, 2006
Established in the late 1970’s, Kent Performance Cams has grown from a fledgling idea nurtured by two engineers - Bob Munt and Bob Fry - into a world renowned specialist camshaft manufacturing team, a camshaft manufacturing house that was capable of producing competition engine components .
Kent Camshaft Timing

Adjustable belt drive timing kit, C-AJJ3328
Created: January 30, 2000
The ubiquitous toothed belt cam drive system, originally developed for use on high performance race engines, is now generally accepted as the norm on all state of the art, modern engines. The application of this drive system gives very accurate ignition tming and quiet running, advantages that do not diminsh with time.
Camshaft Drives
Created: January 30, 2000
Fitment of an uprated cam drive system is essential when building a performance orientated engine. Timing scatter induced by the standard set up can reach up to 15° once the single row chain has stretched, which it does after only a few miles

Modified to give maximum performance gain for cost. Combustion chambers, inlet and exhaust ports extensively re-worked. Stone-ground finish in ports promotes ultimate fuel atomisation. Three-angle valve seats in head. Cooper S size valves with current maximum flow profiles and Tuftrided for durability/longevity when used with unleaded fuel (hence 'black' finish).
Rocker Gear
Created: January 30, 2000
The new generation of short period, high lift cams have been developed to give the best results in large bore engines when used in conjunction with 1.5 ratio, hi-lift rockers. For the small bore range, the stock 1.3 ratio is optimum. In certain instances ratios of 1.7 to 1 are of benefit - but is really only applicable to fully developed race engines.
Cylinder Heads Identification, Austin, Midget, Sprite, Morris
Created: January 30, 2000
Everybody has their own opinion on this subject. The most experienced people will tell you that the best way to maintain your engine performance is to accept the fact that valve jobs need to be done 2 or 3 times more often than rings and bearings! And this data base was concluded when leaded gas was the norm! Now that unleaded is all you can get, valve jobs are needed even more often! The purpose of a valve job is two fold; first the valve seats. The impurities in the air and gas often get trapped between the valve and the seat in the head; under worst conditions stopping the valve from closing, but more commonly being smashed enough to allow just a little seepage of hot gases.
Competition Cylinder Heads
Created: January 30, 2000
A selected range of modified cylinder heads are available to suit a wide variety of applications. All port and chamber modifications are carried out by experts to current state of the art specifications. Therefore, actual specifications may alter slightly as gas flow and port velocity efficiency improvements are developed. Where large bore heads are used on small bore engines (i.e. 12G940 casting on 948/1098cc block), it is necessary to check full lift of exhaust valve, and pocket the block as necessary.
Competition head stud and nut kit
Created: January 30, 2000
This kit has been produced by Mini Spares to reduce head gasket problems on performance orientated engines, especially those utilising large over bore sizes. Standard type head studs and nuts are mass produced which unfortunately compromises the specification of the end product. Worst affected are the threaded portions which create problems during torque-down; thread deformation, stud distortion and possible stretch, off-square seating of the nut to head and so on.

Using these bushes it is possible to achieve an increase in valve lift of upto 0.030". They must be pressed into the rocker with the thick section pointing forwards, ie. toward the rocker pad. It is advisable to use bearing-fit compound (Loctite) to ensure the bush does not rotate in use, taking up ‘wear’ in old rockers. Once fitted, they need to be reamed out to 9/16", for best easy slide fit on the intended shaft.

Changing from Dynamo to Alternator
Created: September 01, 2000
Completing this change successfully, easily and neatly is pretty straight forward on a Mini. The alternator contains the regulator and cut out functions within it’s casing, so makes the regulator box used with a dynamo redundant. However, it is useful to retain the box itself and it’s connectors.

If done properly, converting your Mini to EFI can have many benefits. The EFI Engine Control Unit (ECU) can control all aspects of the combustion of the air/fuel ratio under all conditions. For each and every load point throughout the rev range that the engine may experience, the EFI ECU can calculate the optimum timing and delivery of fuel as well as precisely when ignition will take place by supplying spark at exactly the right time in order to maximise power and torque.

The demands on this gearbox were well within design limits. Over the years the engines got bigger and bigger as did the weight of the cars they were installed in.
Quaife Limited Slip Differentials - Classic Mini Cooper
Created: January 26, 2006
The Quaife Differential powers both drive wheels under nearly all conditions, instead of just one. With an ordinary open differential, standard on most cars, a lot of precious power is wasted during wheelspin under acceleration. This happens because the open differential shifts power to the wheel with less grip (along the path of least resistance). The Quaife, however, does just the opposite. It senses which wheel has the better grip, and biases the power to that wheel. It does this smoothly and constantly, and without ever completely removing power from the other wheel.

When most folk talk about limited slip differentials for cars with a BMC rear end, the minds immediately turn to the "Salisbury". Indeed many think that word covers any LSD for a BMC. This of course is not so. The Salisbury diff was designed in the 50's at a time when race cars were not sophisticated, tires were usually crossply with limited grip due to port compounds, and tracks were more than a little bumpy. Agriculturally built cars needed diffs built along similar lines. High static loads were more than common to help compensate for shortfalls in chassis and tire design -
