JEGS and Auto Zone still list the CCS-1 as "available". I was able to put one in the "shopping Cart" at JEGS, for $169.00 plus shipping. I cancelled the order since that's a very high price for that cam. Auto Zone wouldn't accept my online order, so I don't know what the situation is there. Several other vendors list both cams as "out of stock". Sometimes that means a limited number of cams are produced once a year, and the current supply has been sold out. I've got a few wholesale sources I can contact tomorrow to get the straight skinny on whether they're still being produced. I have one CCS-1 stockpiled- - - -if they are actually being discontinued, I'm going to grab a few more before the supply dries up!

My cam grinder tells me there is a shortage of cam blanks, not just for the 235/261, but also the second generation motors. A quick look at the 12bolt.com website seems to confirm this as they are having trouble getting some of their cams back in stock.

OK- - - -straight from the source- - - -I called Elgin and a very nice lady in their customer service department told me the E-293S cam IS NOT discontinued- - - -however their cores for that cam are on backorder, and they do not have a projected date at the moment when they will be back into production. A call to Melling customer service got a "we're closed right now- - -please call back" recording but a part number search of their website lists the CCS-1 as "available to order". It looks like we don't have to panic just yet!
