Hi folks,

as in my intro post, I'm currently rebuilding my AMC Cub "Mokealike" which I first put together 30 years ago. I've got my hands on a 1275 A series lump to replace the tired 998 and will be giving it a rebore as a minimum. My Mini knowledge has suffered from time and probably the after effects of alcohol, loose women etc etc so what I'm asking is... Am I correct in thinking all A and A+ camshafts are interchangeable as long as you have the appropriate oil pump to suit the drive? I'm thinking of a Minispares EVO001 but they're listed as A+, I guess this only refers to the oil pump drive but I'd like to be sure.

Thanks Dave.
