Icon9 Cam snapped! What should I do???

Hey everyone. well after replacing my timing belt I noticed that my distributer would not turn with the cam so i unbolted the cam girdles to find that my cam had snapped in half!! i have no clue how this happened because i had them out literally a few days before and they were fine. I cannot find any stock H22A4 cams out there. Please tell me where i can find some or what i should replace them with. Thanks

Did you over tighten the cam caps?

Crower has stock replacement cams. I can't tell you how much they are because I never looked into them, but I know they have them.

Re: Cam snapped! What should I do???

Each cam is $306.77 from the link I put...way expensive. You can get a PAIR from crower(Stock replacement) for $404. Here is the link for ya! Crower Cams & Equipment - What's New
