Well I went to see the owner of the Home hardware in Stamford plaza(a friend of mine), and he and I went through their catalog listings for Molyslip products, everything except Molyslip E has been discontinued. They did not list the assembly lubes AS40 and AS60. I need to find an online supplier of these things, this is ridiculus.Its not surprising, supplies of specialty stuff do not exist in Canada.

Instead of making this into a 4day $100 project why not try using the telephone to find some moly paste. Why would you install the cam first , then start thinking about what cam lube to use?

The Home Hardware stocking number for the Moly Slip E is #8641-106.
Call the other store and quote this stock number. They either got it in stock or they don't. 5 minutes computer check.

Any of the local automotive supply stores will have a equal product-another brand to the Moly Disulphide Paste. "Isky REV lube"
This is not a proprietary product. Pretty much every lube company makes there version of it. And sells it in everything from small squeeze packs ( samle/single use to bulk 5 gallon pails of it. Every camshaft company has it.

Call them: Do not ask for moly grease.

If you want to know who else stocks the Moly Slip brand products,
email Moly Slip. They will probabily reply with a list.
Not that hard. They are on face book too.

Try these two convienient modern time saving inventions next time.
The telephone and the internet.

Camshaft lube requirements: Try reading the camshaft install directions.

The Mcleod rd store has 3 cans of the Molyslip E oil suplement in stock.
Took me less than 45 seconds on the phone to find out.

A local machine shop owner, a member here, read this thread and called me. I have the needed materials.
Thanks to all who offered useful advice, it was much appreciated.
