Cam, solid lifters, timing problems

Hi All,

Well Rose has acted up again and I have taken the head off to see what the problem is. Several inlet valve tips are burred over, with the worst one actually punching a hole in its rocker. What could have caused this?
Engine specs are as follows:
202 bored 60 thou with ACL flat top pistons
Holley 500 2 barrel carb on Cain manifold, extractors, 2.75 exhaust
Solid lifters with the following cam:
- Unknown brand
- Profile no: R34 112deg SEP
- Valve setting Ex: 0.024" In: 0.022"
- Dur @ 0.050" Ex: 245deg In: 234deg
- Lobe lift @ TDC In 0.069" = 2deg Adv
- Valve lift Ex: 0.487" In: 0.472"
- Spring tension: Ex: 1.780" @ 125 lb In: 1.770" @ 125 lb @ 0.500" 280lb

LC XU1 carbies

We've got an LC XU1 CD150 triple Stromberg setup on the EH.
The front and rear carbies are stamped 128A which I believe are genuine XU1.
The centre carby has the vacuum advance connection and is stamped 128B.
Does anyone know if the 128B is genuine XU1 as well?
I'll be selling them soon and I need to know befor they go on evilbay.
