Default Timing belt / FE

Does anyone have an exact cam pulley *number for best FE? I am doing my belt on my BRM and it spears that it has an infinite * setting on the cam pulley. That being said does anyone have it "dialed in" for best FE?

Find the thread titled something along the lines of "the problem of setting torsion" and read read read.

TL;DR: every car seems to have its own optimal torsion setting.

There was a sticker on the engine that listed the factory setting. Probably long gone by now though.
