H&H Flatheads is located in LaCrescenta, just north of LA. They are one of the best in the country. They can get you what you need.

I would try Isky Racing Cams, (310) 770-0930. I don't have any current experience with them but they used to be one of the best.

I am not in LA , but if I can find a nice Potvin 3/4 to make a "master" from I could grind one. I have shipped my KiWi-L100 cam to 5 different countries in just the last 3 months & would gladly ship to Italy.
Cheers
Tony

Call Jerry Cantrell at Schneider Cams in San Diego 1(619)297-0227. Can grind any flathead cam you need and even custom grinds all the same prices. I've only been using his cams since 1966 NEVER a problem or an unsatisfied customer that I used his cams for.

Hi rodderbilly; Pete, owner of D&L Automachine, he posts here under Pete. He's probably driven most of the grinds others just grind, with around sixty years experience. Good luck, Craig.

what ducemac said x2. Schnider puts out a great product and can do custom grinds. They have been around forever…so there is a reason they are…
