The Super Flash must have blown a few socks off at the time. How does a 'Daytona' cam translate to later camshafts? It's interesting that they didn't fit double carbs. History shows that twin carbs make little difference to these engines; did the development team on this model discover that?

G'day GB.
I wonder if it was the same as the 358.

I think the Super Flash had the 356 cam from the Star Twin, certainly what the parts list shows.

The 1953 BA7D Daytona engine brake test sheets show them with the 357 (where cam recorded) and the 1954 CA7D engines shown with the 358 (where the cam listed)

They do Richard, and a bit of first aid can keep 'em going for ever.
Well, 71 years so far, this one  . . .  (I'll never change it for 'shiny', just can't get the quality!)
