Spidey, I'd sugges a US vendor, not Canadian. You're adding unnecessary cost by looking North of the border.

Well, so far I am SOL. Nobody in my town understands what I want to do and it is going to cost me too much if I send away too far for this. Any possibility of cross referencing frm another version of this engine? Or are there too many differences in each evolution of our engines? I know if anybody knows this it would be you O Master O Da Bonne!

Talked with my gearhead uncle and he suggested that if I get anyone to grind a cam to get compcams to do it. He told me to get the duration enlarged, but not so much as to diminish the spark, I hope I said that right. Anyway, I'm emailling compcams to explore the possibilites. Let you guys know what I find out.

Compcams told me they don't even have a core cam to grind for my engine. Oh well. It was worth a try. Guess all I have left is to go for the NOS.

Thanks for everybody'* input!! :P :P
