Someone mentioned Hart cam covers.

I discovered a photo of one only the other day. Somewhat different in shape to the usual styles. I've just written an article on the great Brian Hart and the 416-B engine for the next edition of Club Lotus News.

Hi Tim
The Brian Hart cam cover was actually made in magnesium.

I am looking at making Big Valve cam covers would be interested to gauge interest from members of the forum.
Also whether preference for original oil filler cap or threaded billet cap.

let me know?

Cheers

Dave,
Looking for a BRM "drysump" cam cover for the TC. Have any yet?
It does not need to be orange or green - bare aluminum is fine.
Thanks..........Jay
