As we make progress on our project (1961 Mini Minor with original 850 engine) I was quite surprised to discover that there is only 1 camshaft bearing. The other 2 journals are metal on metal. I know later engines had a bearing for each journal.
I've already looked into switching to a higher volume oil pump so think replacing the camshaft with a later one would allow me to use one with the correct drive.
So I'm wondering if journal size is at least as large and is lift & duration compatible with the 850 pistons?
thanks in advance,
Brian & Ruth
