MG TD TF 1500 - .019 to .012 Factory Cam Change

I remember that there has been discussion at various times about why the factory switched from the .019 to the .012 cam. I remember suggesting it was for more power or torque - it appears I was incorrect.

In looking through my set of factory Service Information Memos I find memo TD/4/8 dated 19.3.53. It clearly notes that:

"Commencing at engine XPAG/TD2/24116 a new camshaft has been fitted to the TD midget to improve wear on the tappet faces."

If only it had worked!

TD Midget to improve wear on the tappet faces."
