Colt Cams does and they have some good L-series profiles, as does Shadbolt Cams, all here in B.C..

They all worked with the local racers at the height of the 510 racing, both road, Solo, etc.. They helped me with my custom turbo grinds MANY times over the years.

Schneider still has them in the catalog, but may require a core to grind. Have not checked recently.

Edit: L4 cams require regrinding.

I have some U20/SSS cams if someone needs one.

Ask for Joey Bray, he is super, have your questions ready, he usually very busy. Camshaft only, no rockers or lash pads.
