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."|
I'd say they sucseeded ..they wear in a hurry :-)
