Hi All,

Thanks

Thanks for the info.
I had a set of L1 and L2 cams, but I sent them to a English repair shop during their rebuilding of my twin-cam, and they were "stolen". Odd how that happens. Now I have no cams, and am in need of a set of cams, drive washers and bolts. I didn't want to spend the money, but it looks like I'll have to go to Burton's or the equivalent..
