Std camshaft Spec

Probably ! But heads seem to be original (but very worn) . Carb is an early Weber DFAV 40, early oil sump , oil gauge in front cover etc
Just cylinder block seems swapped ..but I've no idea for camshaft, even if I presume they kept the old one

Maybe I'm wrong but for me Burton sales only ARP bolts for connecting rod: that's the problem!
