[Mgs] Camshaft recommendations

When I did the rebuild on my 72B, I used what I think was a 270 degree
duration - the best performance I could get for street usage. This was
maybe 5 years ago so I don't recall all the details but I know details
were discussed on this list about cams several times. I ended up getting
the cam from Lawrie Alexander who was active on the list although I'm
not sure if he is now. He runs a British repair shop in California (not
that I am anywhere near there) and I still have his website bookmarked:


His price was good and he provides technical advice as well so he would
be a good source.

I'm rebuilding an engine for a 71B and need a new camshaft.  This will
not be for racing or high performance, just a good solid driver.  Can
anyone recommend a good source?  Are there any specific requirements or
issues such as with the timing gears to watch out for?  Any advice will
be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance.
