Triumph Spitfire - Rocker Arm Ratio
|Can anyone tell me the rocker arm ratio of a Spitfire 1147 cc engine; and/or the camshaft lobe lift (not the valve lift) of an A6 grind cam?|
|I think it's 1.48:1, but see:|

|In case anyone is interested, I'm quite sure that the rocker arm ratio for a 1147 cc Spitfire is 1.45:1. The 1.48:1 ratio may be correct for a GT-6; and the 1296 & 1500 Spitfires may not be the same as the 1147 - but, after doing some measuring and calculating, it appears to me that the ratio for the 1147 engine is 1.45:1.|
