Default Bristol engine Rocker arm ratio

Has anyone ever calculated the Rocker arm ratio on the Bristol engine. I am specifically talking about the BS1MkII but I don't think there are any basic differences in the architecture of the Bristol engines.

412usa,
The rocker ratio is 1.5 to 1.0 .
So for example the cam lobe lift is .200 inch , the valve lift will be .300 less the valve clearance .
