Hi everyone, in finalization of my mechanics major overhaul of the '66 4A i own, it's come to the point of degreeing the camshaft. It's a TT1004 cam, with the following specs: Inlet Timing: 37-63 Exhaust Timing: 73-27 Install Figure: 103˚ Cam Duration: 280˚ Reading everything that contains words "camshaft", "cam", TT1xxx, or similar, i've found that this specific one works best when setup just as per specs - installed at 103˚. However - coming from some experience with Minis, there is always talk about timing chain stretch and that you should expect it to give in as much as 2˚ in first 2000 miles (not just folklore, but with some actual measuring behind the figures - 1.0˚ in first 150 miles, 1.5˚ in 1000 miles and as much as 2˚ in first 2000 miles). Has anyone experienced anything similar with our 4 pots here, and does anyone take this into consideration when degreeing the cam? I got the chain and the gears from TR Shop, not really sure on the manufacturer and its stretchability... Cheers! Luka
