Go to Speedtalk.com and post your question.

What are you looking for? Specs?

Cam cores are difficult to come by for everyone.

Couple month wait on this one, well worth the wait.

I've got a few BBC roller cams. If it''l get ya out of a jam.

I originally purchase this cam from Summit with a projected month wait, when it got pushed back another month I was fortunate Speedway Motors took it from a kit they had.

This is a hyraulic roller cam I run in muscle cars 462's & 468's BBC's.

I've talked with the top brass at a few manufacturers, the problem is, they don't know when the cores are gonna show up.

The cores show up randomly.

Look how old the box is, this was in a kit Speedway Motors had.

Jones ain't gonna rip anyone, he's just like everyone else, he doesn't know when or how many cores are show up next delivery.

I would, if it got too painful I'd call Crower or Clay Smith.

They've both been good about it, although there is a wait, ... they've both delivered in a fairly reasonable amount of time.

Good people too. Killer cams.

Good Luck Sir!

I bought a Jones cam several years ago and it was delivered as quick as any I have ordered. Then 3 cams ago I ordered again when a lifter failed. After waiting a couple of months I canceled and ordered the same cam from LSM except in a 4-7 swap.
I found out that LSM makes their own cores and supply's the manufacturers theirs. Their web site claims they can grind them in 1-2 days. But my last one took 3 weeks because of the crona. It was a 4-7, 3-2 swap for a mopar.

This is nasty Crower hydraulic roller I put in a BBC for the low compression pump gas street car , made over 700 hp easily in handful of dyno pulls. Nothing elaborate, out of the box aluminum square port heads. It rips well past 7000 rpms.

About Mike Jones, my Lamplighter project has a Jones cam, and it performs as expected. I bought it about 18 months ago before the shortage became a problem

I had great customer service. I was lucky I guess in that I had a cam and needed to be reground so so cam core needed. I even had a bad cam core with first one and he had spent bunch of time trying to correct, but could not and no extra charge.

Very satisfied and highly recommend the guy.
