    I can find out where I got mine a few years back. If you don't get any response by Friday, PM me. I'll be home this weekend to check where I purchased them.

    Good luck getting that tool from TR anytime soon. I have heard weeks in delays. Maybe its changed. But why, why would you spend that much money for a tool your gonna use for maybe, maybe 10 minutes why you swap out the cam.

    Go to home depot and buy to 5/16 wooden dowel rods and cut them to length you need. Some people are afraid to use a wood product inside thier engine. Your not forcing anything in there. Not like your going to pound these wooden dowels in with a 4 lb hammer. They slide in and slide out very easy and will cost you under 5 bucks.

    Unless you plan on building a lot of cam only cars, just buy the wooden dowels, or even pick up a piece of rod and make them yourself. SHould have less than $8 invested.
