There is pretty much no choice for stock replacement camshafts for 36hp. I wonder why Wolfsburg West does not grind and sell a new stock cam?

I purchased a camshaft for my 36hp from Air Cooled Research for $109US plus $30 shipping to Canada. Of course that was a while ago when the Canadian dollar was close to par with the US dollar. Not true nowadays. I was very pleased with the camshaft.

No, at the time that price was without a core. Not sure if that is still the case.

I tried to deal with BBT before and they would not ship to me in Canada. They would only ship to CIP1 and then get shipped from there to my house. Shipping timeline was mental and the price was high.
