Hi Keith; good to hear from you after all this time!

Do you still have the same GT6?

Good to hear from you Keith, sorry I can't help with the valve clearances. Kent Cams provide camshafts for some Triumph specialists, so may be worth contacting them to see if they ground cams for Jigsaw.

Hi Keith, 

Jigsaw fitted this fast road cam for the PO in my Vitesse. It's an M27TR6PI from Bastuck, perhaps you can get the info from them or an Internet search. I've since replaced this cam so don't know the clearances and nothing in the Jigsaw file.

PS, I have this cam spare if you need another one!

My higher lift Newman cam is 14 thou inlet and 16 thou exhaust. I think the Bastuck cam is the same or higher with more overlap. It really does depend on the profile. On this one occasion perhaps Jigsaw are right but most fast road cams have bigger clearances. 

I know this doesn't help!

Hi Folks 

yes it is the same GT6 I haven't used it very much in recent years Just insured and taxed  it today with claasicline and will be going over to my storage garage tomorrow and take some photos of it for the agreed value insurance .It is still in the same  condition  when it won at stafford back in 2008 or possible fractionally better as I have had chance to finish some bits and  have finally got the heater hoses to fit .Hope to put a few miles on it this year once I have gone through a few final checks Thanks for the guide to valve clearances will check my build records and see if I can find the set up info  , It should be in their but I have so much paper work it is difficult to find one single sheet 

Regards Keith

Thanks Mike

I  appreciate you response I will ask the wife to make contact as I don't have a face book account . I have found the original invoice from 2005 how time fly's and it is listed as a TR5 150BHP camshaft plus I bought 12 lightened followers and the duplex Vernier timing kit at the same time, total will as £365.30 wounded what it would cost now

In which case just use the tr5 figures. 10 thou I believe.

Thanks for that I will set it to a loose 10 thou

Regards Keith

Hello Keith

                  I can not see the point of loose 10 thou then it would be 11,12,13? 

But I agree 10 thou as factory!
