My daughter-in-law recently felt that my old age would be improved by reducing the number of boxes in the garage.

 

All "The Knobbly Bars" were put in one box.

 

The knobbly bar in question's 1/2" inlet lobes have a lift of .259" and the .265"  exhaust lobes are more lumpy that the inlet.

 

The oil pump drive slot has been cut through a lightly stamped "370??A"  and then badly stamped  with "KCLGC 10230".  there is also "10042" stamped in small figures.

Sounds like it could be a 1275 A+ SPI one, but I am sure others may know better as I have very little knowledge of the fuel injected minis compared to their carb counterparts

UPDATE:

Kent tell me that it is a Race Cam that they grind for MiniSpares,  as used in the "Mighty Mini Race Series"

As AC said, it is a std SPI profile. It is the cam that you have to use in Mighty Minis, (unless you are Tellos mate, then you can use anything). Kent ground some after problems with Rover supply.
