I went to the GM dealer down the street and got a pint of EOS, but they don't stock the cam and lifter pre-lube stuff any more. They can get it but I would have to buy a case, and thats not gonna happen. I am stuck with no material for the lifter faces, except the Permetex Ultra Slick, so that's how my day has gone. One nice thing about being retired.... I have lots of time to chase down parts and materials for an antique engine thats almost as old as I am...LOL
call the Home hardware store in Stamford Plaza or on McLeod rd. The Molyslip products are listed on their online site. They should have it.
Fallsway Auto Supply on Desson. Any of the many local automotive machine shops will have it or can get it next day.
