Asides about valve gear

In his excellent just-published book about MG cars, reviewed elsewhere, Wilson McComb says, quite rightly, that when the M-type MG Midget was conceived, Cecil Kimber had a ready-made overhead camshaft engine for it, in the guise of that designed for a still-born Wolseley Eight in 1927 and used in detuned form for the new Morris Minor.
