Anyone any experience? There seems to be a couple of options:


MED Timing Cover (https://www.med-engi...am-timing-cover) you need to re-use your timing plate or MED also sell an alloy timing plate.


RetroSport (http://www.dsnclassi...front-breather/) allows you to eliminate the timing plate?


If you add the alloy timing plate to the MED kit then the price of both are identical.


I'm running the Swiftune vernier duplex timing gear set.

I have the retrosport version, no leaks and looks beautiful.
I’ve also fitted one to a 67 Cooper S and to a 1275 ex race engine. Both no problems.
Worth the money

I've got the MED version with the alloy timing plate and an old kent cams vernier duplex timing gears. Fits perfectly, no leaks and clears an 11 blade plastic fan with no fan spacers.
