Thanks Don .... Should I assume the cam profiles are the same or close? or is the earlier cam a little more robust?

David,

If the cams are stock, the 1725 alloy head cam is the most "robust". If the cam has been reground, it could be fairly different from stock.

Try this link and scroll down to page 30 to check out the cam info that Jan compiled.

Thanks for the feedback on this issue. Apparently I have a 1725 block which at some point had a 1.6 camshaft installed. At this point I think I must go in search of a correct 1725 camshaft and try to get this motor fitted with the correct parts.

FYI Rootes Spares in the Netherlands is selling new camshafts for the 1725 (and 1592). But finding a used core and having it rebuilt would likely be cheaper.
