    Default Recommendations for roller cam for mild red 308 rebuild

    Hi there,
    My HX Kingswood wagon recently had the worked 308 drop the roller off the Lunati roller lifters and cam which is stamped (889516) on the end.I'm looking to replace it with something similar or the same but the mechanic doing the build believed it wasn't a Crane cam? Can anyone verify that code and if it was a Crane please? the engine was built 7 years ago and probably done less than 10,000kms
    The list of what was done to the engine as I bought it was as follows:

    Red 308
    std pistons
    EFI heads, overhauled and cut for twin springs (how do I tell what model?)
    Harrop duel plane inlet manifold
    Holley 650 spread bore double pumper
    Crane hydraulic roller cam (889516)
    Crane hyd roller lifters on invoice, but Lunati in engine(Lunati from Crane??)
    Crane twin springs, retainers, collets
    Crane oil pump drive gear
    Yella Terra street Terras roller rockers
    1 piece moly pushrods
    Powerbond balancer
    Electronic ignition
    Difillippo extractors


    It has a Trimatic trans with a stage 3 shift kit
    Ford 9" diff with 3.5 gears

    Any thoughts on that cam listing(889516) being 7 years ago?
    and I'd like to know if Lunati would have come as a set with cam and wether you can get replacements for the one cylinder as I might use the old cam and lifters for another engine?
    Any help on where in South Australia to buy a decent roller cam and lifter set or of eBay that is reputable?

    Cheers
