Hi all .. Is everyone else having a problems getting parts?? I've had a cam and lifters on order with Comp Since July... Talking with Summit and Comp had the cam come in but was holding on to it until the roller lifters came in.. We were able to get them to send me the cam so I could get most of the motor bolted up...But my lifters are still on back order... was set to ship 9/30 now its 11/2 ... 馃槩 :cry: GGGEEEEZZZZ
Just wanted to vent... and see if its the same for everyone..

Yeah, I think we're all dealing with the same. Covid scaremongers and profiteers have manufacturing and shipping industries in turmoil.

Yes i thought so.. But they were holding onto my cam until the lifters came in.. So I asked if they could send the cam so I could button up the motor for the most part. Now they did but wanted to starter a whole new order and charging me 120$ more for the cam???? I said NOOO... they've had my money over 900$ since July collecting intress and are wanting to charge me more for the cam if I change the order?? Summit got them to keep the same price and put it on back order.. Just getting frustrating waiting this long and now waiting longer??? Ship dates on Summit are 10/12 .. but in my summit order mine aint till 11/12?

For several quarters now we've had to get creative in order to keep cams, lifters, distributors, pistons and gaskets, to name but a few items, available and on the shelf so we can build engines and supply kits etc to our clients.

I've dealt with corporate rationing.
I've encountered profiteering both corporate and with private entities willing to capitalize on this situation without shame.
Materials shortages.
Labor shortages due to lack of bodies and illness sweeping through suppliers shutting them down.
Supply chain disruptions of basic building blocks for manufacture of various items we use.
Edelbrock moving their machining facilities to Mississippi from So. Cal.
Lack of aftermarket blocks for the BBF that have nothing to do with Covid19 but are real nevertheless.

There are 17 container ships in our commencement bay here at the Port of Tacoma waiting to offload and even more up at the Port of Seattle. Not enough truck drivers and long shore-men.
There are at last check 70 container ships waiting to off load in southern California.

Camshaft machine in Michigan will make the cam blanks and steel billets we need if we pay almost double the previous price and order at least 25 units prepaid with delivery depending on materials availability. Delta cam's owners and I told them to get F$%@#$.

I've experienced price increases so frequent we have to double check current WD before a quote AND before the sale / order.

I can go on...


Is the OP looking for solid roller lifters or hydraulic? We have a couple of sets of HR lifters made by morel.
We also have a couple of sets of comp SR lifters as well.

Can't find a NEW roller billet right now to save my soul.

Food and fuel will be next. Especially since Bill POS Gates is now the biggest land owner in the USA.

I know the comp HR lifters are back ordered. That is why I kept the 5 sets of Morel manufactured hydraulic roller lifters I received when I ordered only 1.

I ordered a few set is the ultra rare 1.090 C/H 347 Ford flat tops from Wiseco in December of 2020. I got one set that was in stock at the time and another set that is due to arrive next week. I cancelled all order with them in March,. due to increasing prices and decreasing service.

There are three issues. The ports (unions and a lack of trucks and drivers), a national shortage of truck drivers, and the rail lines can't get the people they laid off back....because they got better jobs.

There is freight sitting all over the US with no way to move it. Also there is not much going to China, so LA and Long Beach have empty containers stacked all over. Between empties and offloads, they are at capacity.

But, at least they are beginning to load empties to return to China.

Scotty, is Edelbrock moving their foundry and machining facilities to Mississippi? I knew their corporate stuff is now here along with Lunati, Comp, and others. We welcome the industry, but damn I hope they put a sign on every wall, reminding employees why they left CA. Come on in, but don't bring the bullshizzle with you.

Just an FYI: we are still on a downward trend. In other words, next year is likely going to be worse than this year as far as parts shortages go (or at best will not be any better than it currently is).

Those of you who intend to build next year would be wise to order (and pay for) your next year's parts needs right now.

So how's that "Green New Disaster" working out for the automotive industry?

It is my understanding that Edelbrock took the machining operations to Mississippi so as to not have to compete with other companies wages for workers at their Cali machining facilities.




I come here to discuss automotive related 460 topics as I have for nearly 20 years.

I do NOT come here for anyones political Bullshit.
I can see plenty of that on Social Media platforms.

This is a general statement not aimed at anybody specifically.

Particularly since the prices are rising......fast.

Me too...but it's a public forum. There are always posts I don't much care for....but it's a public forum. I post as I post and others do the same. I do not take umbrage at any of it.

For my own self, as an example, I don't come here to sell parts. So I don't push myself on anyone. Others differ....and that's okay. I'm not their mom.

Had same issues with an order that I was waiting on since May 14th. Comp Cam CL34-235-4 cam and lifters and a set of Hooker 6911 headers. At time of placing order with Jegs they were to be shipped by May 16th, the first delay was dated at 2 weeks from then on it jumped by 30 days. Last week I called Jegs to find out if there were any updates, basically they said no and I understand their predicament. I asked if they had the camshaft and lifters separate. Jegs didn't have the cam but the Comp cams 832-16 hydraulic lifters were in stock-the ONLY set of hydraulic flat tappet lifters in ANY of their warehouses. Needless to say I quickly purchased them but kept the backordered parts on order. Immediately after purchasing the lifters from Jegs I went to Summit website and found they had (10) 34-245-4 camshafts in stock, once verified they were on hand and ready to ship, I placed my order. Of course I paid extra buying the separate parts and shipping/handling due to not meeting price break, but have the parts. I luckily found a set of Flow-tech headers on FB marketplace that are basically a mirror image(tube layout) of the Hooker 6911. Once the headers arrived I canceled my order with Jegs. Another example of delays, I went to my local Rural King(basically a Walmart and farm supply store under one roof) and tried to order 1-8 foot and 1-10' tube gates, they told me it would be 14-16 weeks to get them. 14-16 weeks WTH. Luckily for me, there was a Tractor Supply across the street that just had a gate shipment come in. I do believe, like others have posted, we haven't seen the worst of all this yet and definitely agree this isn't all Covid related.

I agree. I don't come here to discuss politics, just engines, which includes responding to someone's question about the reason for engine component shortages. Nor have I come here with such arrogance that I think I can shut down people I don't agree with, by posting a manifesto and saying, "Mike OUT".
