Try Andy Jones at Mdina Italia.
He got just one for me, but that’s 'cos I know him. He usually sells them in pairs when available.
If anyone knows of a reputable engineer who can do a good and cost-effective repair to knackered cams, I’d like to know. I have a pair of GTS cams made from case-hardened chocolate that need re-facing.
For bigalandchrissy’s benefit, when you put the heads back together, leave out the inner valve springs and just go with the large outers. It’s the additional un-needed pressure from the second sent of springs that chews the cams. It’s happened on EVERY GTS I have ever seen, and they work perfectly well with a single valve spring.
