WOT throttle body cam

Hi all

My throttle body cam is broken... so looking to see if there has been any aftermarket ones made that are metal? Or even just an OEM replacement?

Thanks

Itís been a couple years. The first package (a padded envelope as I recall)had a hole and was empty. I emailed him and he shipped another.

Any luck reaching the guy who makes these? If not, any machine shop should be able to make one for you or you may want to try making one yourself out of aluminum. The trick of course is the hole with the flat. Easy to mold but hard to machine. I would consider drilling and reaming the hole to its full diameter and then drill and tap for a setscrew that will bear on the flat on the shaft it mates to.

Hi Torqhead.
No luck at all, but I actually went and did exactly what you suggested.

Hereís the end product....
