I had a Shorrocks on my Frogeye when I bought it fifty years ago. Having blown the first one I picked up a second hand one, for £25, from Adlards of Putney. After a long run oil would collect in the bottom of the cylinder. One day two ladies walked past the rear of the car just as I fired up. They suddenly disappeared in a cloud of smoke that would have made a destroyer Captain proud!
Does anyone have an old sprocket or woodruf key that they can measure for me (my only one is buried in my engine!).
I have a 1932 Armstrong Siddeley and I'm hoping that I can use an offset Midget (or B if anyone has one of those) woodruf key to bring the cam timing to where it needs to be. A long shot but worth a try! Any help appreciated.
