We are working on Dawn's motor and need to have it assembled by this weekend and cannot find the cam. Sad Bugformance is closed. Engle won't be open until Monday, we wouldn't get it until Tuesday. We're not going to make our deadline unless I can come up with one before that. Anyone have an idea of where I could find one? Grasping at straws.

Crap that sucks. I think Kim (Justcruzin) and her husband know the guys over at Bugformance pretty well. You might ask if they'd help a brother out......it could never hurt.

Thanks Greg, I just did. Hoping she can call Bob Hole. We are working on top end stuff in the meantime to hopefully not lose any time, but will need a cam by tomorrow...

I talked to Dawn, but thought I'd let others know here, we couldn't help out. We don't know them that well. Have no way of contacting them after hours.

I will keep my eyes peeled though!

How about Jason at TRP? Can anyone get in touch with him?

Maybe send a message to Bugformance on Facebook???

That was my last bullet. I text'd him and he said that the owner would not be willing to open the doors.

However, this might not be a bad idea.

I wonder if they even carry a K8, most shops carry the Engle 1xx series anymore.

Thanks everyone. We still need one. I went on Bugformance website to see if they even have K8's and they aren't listed in a search. We lost 2 hours looking, so wanted to stay on sched by working on top end stuff that we would have done later. And we have a list of machining the heads, cutting the manifolds, altering the carb linkage, changing the exhaust flange, lots to do after all that without the motor assembled. So, I'm hoping if we order one on Monday and get it Tuesday, we MAY still get it done if EVERYTHING is modified and all that is left is to put it together (and hope it all goes smoothly). But, if anyone can find one tomorrow or Monday, we will replace it Tuesday! Thanks for all the help. Smile

I can't believe Dave doesn't have one laying in his garage.

I'm just going to say that if you were building a type 4 you'd have like 15 cams to choose from! Unfortunately we aren't that stocked with Type 1 components...

Sorry Dawn

Cam is coming Fedex today, so we are back on schedule. It turns out there was plenty to do "out of order" on the top end to not waste any precious time and we are still hoping to finish this and bring the car to my surprise party at Test And Tune on FRIDAY. Smile
