3-4 Hub retainer snap ring needed

PostPost by: brettengelaz » Wed Apr 15, 2020 12:15 am

I'm rebuilding an early close-ratio box and need to replace the snap ring (circlip) that retains the 3rd/4th hub on the mainshaft. I've tried the Dave Bean, Keveldon, and Burton Power without success.
Does anyone know of a source? Obviously I'm not in a hurry, so anywhere that would ship to the US is fine.
Cheers,
Brett.

I would try Tony Thompson Racing in the UK.
