Post Samurai adjustable timing gear

I see a lotta ads for the adjustable cam gear but can't seem to find a place to actually purchase one. Does anyone have a reliable sourse for one or possibly have one that they will not be using. I am about to install a new camshaft and want to install the timing gear at the same time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many years ago, a small company built adjusables for the 1.6 but they fell into the same issue companies have realized over the last 15 years...
We are a small demographic in the world of automotive enthusiasts. If you can't sell enough product to make the manufacturing process affordable, the product will not get made again. They only did a small number of runs before the folks that could afford the part had bought all they needed. They stopped production within a year. The articles are still out there, but nobody is producing the part anymore.
Face it folks, we aren't running a small block chevy...

I knew we had an article about this back on iZook from many years ago.
Here is a link if you are interested in the history.

However, besides the bling factor, it's nice to be able to tinker and have options when you have to go from city driving to the trails.
And I have found 2 different styles that were made for the 1.3. but as you said, supply and demand. I am just hoping to find one someone isn't using anymore. I'll keep my fingers crossed. I'll try and post some pictures of my project soon. I have owned mine since 1998.
