Where to buy cams?

Just wondering, where is the best place to buy a new T140v inlet cam?

I'd like it cheap really as this project has taken up thousands already!

Cheers

I buy a lot of stuff from LP Williams.

The T140 shop is ok but he takes ages to deliver and often a few reminders.

I'd do a search and compare prices, supreme, williams,all the usual suspects.

I'd guess 75 plus VAT for new ones.

Reg allen for second hand? or new?

Nevermind, it's clearly TMS!

Does anyone know if the 71-7016 is the same as the 71-3011?

Cheers!

71-7016 is right, not sure about the other number you quote, and that list from the link Caulky gave is not 100% reliable so please be careful.

TMS are very good and will be able to advise. I certainly wouldn;t rate Shorpshire Classics/T140 shop based on several poor experiences (including sub-standard items). LP Williams seem fine. Monty's Classics (try Googling) is very good. Also, mrcdh on ebay is very good, if he's got any.

With that Shropshire outlet------- you would believe that given that they had recieved quite a valuable (and expensive for Me) order from the other side of the Planet they would have A) read the order properly B) read it again and then selected the correct items for postage to NZ. No, none of that occurred, parts missing and parts not even ordered included. They refused to respond to emails in respect to all this and needless to say, will never ever get a bob of My hard earned money again!

Damn! Never found them on eBay. I did look, must have typed it wrong or something... Confused now!

Oh well, ordered the same one from TMS. I'll measure the new with the old to see about differences although I'm almost certain they are identical...
