  1. Hi Max, Many thanks for getting back to me ..that's what I was hoping would be the case.....I guess I just needed a sanity check as the other groove I spotted below confused me momentarily. Thanks again for confirming Kind Regards, Ed
  2. Hi, I am currently doing some rebuild work on my engine and I have a query on the camshafts? Based on the spec of my Elite 502 1976 I should have "C" Type camshafts fitted. The Lotus manual for "C " Type states "Identification on shank between pulley and cam housing " = plain (so no grooves). Not looked at this for a long time so when I looked at the cams i see the area on the photo marked under 1 is plain with no grooves. However the area i have marked as 2 on the photo shows a thin groove ? Hence my confusion is it a "C" Type CAM with no grooves or a "D" type CAM with one groove? I have always assumed I had C Type cams fitted ...please can someone clarify from the photo as to where exactly the groove should be if any to identify the cam type either located at 1 or 2 ?
