hey guys,

in searching out for a new camshaft I came across Canley Classics. How good/reliable are they as a parts supplier? hopefully not like our beloved VB.

anyways/also they have a camshaft to fit a 1500 that has the profile of a euro MKIII. I'm thinking this would be a good choice to go with my Twin HS4s to give a primary road drive plus a little nit extra kick in the backside. I'm really no looking to add too much "performance" but a little more would be nice.

when I look at the price tag on other cams, they cost 2 to 3 times the cost of this MKIII Canley Cam that fits a 1500. usually you get what you pay for, so I'm a bit leery, but it is within my budget, and would do what I want.

so, anyone have any experience with these guys and their cam?

No experience with the cam, but I can vouch for them as a supplier. They are very attentive and have quality parts based on my experience. I bought my CV axles for the GT6 from them and they helped me a couple times during the conversion

Canleys and Rimmer Bros both have very good customer service. If the item is not to large Canleys may post it to you which saves on the freight cost.

No problem with Canleys parts, or service. But Their shipping on a few small items I just purchased was very high ($55.00) , compared to a similar sized but heavier box from James Paddock (also the UK) for $24.00. You may want to call them about the shipping cost first, as it is not posted on the site.

Todd, did you get the Canley? and if so how has it lasted for you?
Mine is having a problem.
