To add to (my ) confusion, in the 1990's when good quality new spare parts were not readily available, I had a set of good used Flaminia cam followers ground down (they are slightly larger o/d than Aurelia) to use in a B20 engine as the cam followers I had recently bought new then were rubbish. The original can followers were, I think, 'cold cast'(?) whereas the new ones I had bought seemed quite soft on the face which runs on the camshaft.
And as their internal profile was different to that of Aurelia cam followers, I used a set of Flaminia pushrods reduced in length slightly. Quite a good solution I thought at the time but now I cant remember which engine it was!!!! Other than it went in a car straight away and ran well.

PS Todays new cam followers from bone fide sources seem to be fine
