Re the lifters and pushrods:
My 100 came to me with a workshop manual in which the first owner made some
notes about an Iskenderian cam (I believe a T-3) that he installed, along
with Buick lifters and (I think) Studebaker pushrods. Out of curiosity I
called Iskenderian and spoke with Ed's son who was very familiar with this
set-up. He told me that his Dad regularlysold the pushrods and lifters as
a kit along with the cam for Healey 100's back in the day.
