Hi everyone, Christmas Greetings. I just bought a 1994 Catterham Super Sprint but whilst I have the build manual I don’t have a workshop manual with things such as valve clearances and the like. Can anyone point me in the right direction where to get such. I’ve tried Catterham in UK and agent in OZ must can’t get any response!!! Wits end. Help.

Does this have the 1600cc Ford Kent crossflow motor? If so, those specs are easily found on the web....

No its based on that engine but the Sprint was boosted to 1700 and 135 bhp.

Reckon it would be pretty similar specs to standard. Googled found this:
The std Ford settings are 22 (in) and 24 (ex) cold. Any Kent cam up to 244 (V. fast road / rally) states "22 and 24" too.

Caterham didn't do anything special on the xflow that hadn't already been done, so, a Haines manual or google will probably do for most.

BTW, congrats on buying the caterham
