Why would you buy in England and pay twice
what you would pay in the US? Summit Racing
for instance is so much cheaper.
A friend of mine who visits the US yearly
took all the stuff from Summit for me and himself in a
sportbag. No taxes, no hussle. Edelbrock 1404 and intake,
Reynolds timing chain and sprockets, Crane cam
and followers. 
I paid $144 for the cam. Rimmer charges no less
than UKP 211,50 for a fast road Kent cam excluding
shipping costs.

Hi All,

Wanted to ask your help on engine rebuild kits..  Am in the process of
rebuilding my 3.5 V8 ('70 'Federal'  3500S).  I've found what appears to
be, an excellent set of kits from Rimmer Bros. in the UK----a 3.5 kit
and a
3.9 kit.  Can anyone provide any reputable sources for rebuild kits in
US? Does anyone have experience with the Rimmer kits?

Additionally, I have been very successful at NAPA buying replacement
as I proceed with the rebuild, BUT, they could not match or source the
and bottom radiator hoses.  Does anyone have a sources for these hoses,
am I going to have to go with 'flex' replacement hoses (if that is so,
also had a hard time coming up with the proper flex hoses, as it appears
that the diameter of the end of the hose which attaches to the radiator
different than the end which attaches to the engine ---this seems to be
true for both the top and bottom hoses).  Any help with this would also
