Default Where to buy crankshaft key

I need a new crank key. Its the long one for the timing gear and spacer. Anyone know where to buy them. Does anyone know if the auto parts stores carry them?

An automotive machine shop would be the best bet . They are still available from Ford....but they come in a package of 5 or something silly like that .

You can also pick up an engine hardware kit from Dura-Bond, which includes the woodruff keys, cam bolts/washer, and dowels. I happen to order other stuff from Summit, so I included that in the order. It's part number DUR-FKF-3A, and it costs $5.39. I have and ARP cam bolt, but the other stuff will come in handy. 8)

Here's the link and picture.......

If you want to try and pick them up locally, here's a screen shot of the Dura-Bond catalog, and it shows the sizes of each piece. :wink:

If you're reffering to the 3/16" x 1 3/4" crankshaft woodruff key, then 'Pioneer Automotive Products' sells it, part #PK-135.
Their 'Pioneer Performance Products' division also sells it under part #839012. Go figure.
