Have you tried Sunbeam Specialties for a new one? What went wrong with your original one? Eric

I drove the car from Nova Scotia to Rhode Island in June this year, about 1850 miles return. Oil was not pumping up to the rocker assembly sufficiently enough to keep it properly lubricated. Wore nasty grooves in the front and rear shafts and as well as each rocker. Discovered half of the center cam bearing was installed backward. By the time I returned home the assembly was making loud clacking and tapping noises at low rpm, seemed ok at speed.
