In talking with Dave Seat in search of a particular cam shoe and stud he suggested that you might be able to help locate the parts. Don't know if you have access to a US Intertype parts book and Engineering Bulletins book.

At any rate, here is the US information: In the red parts book, page 382 shows cam shoe S-386 and stud W-3852. The Engineering Bulletin quadder section Q-3 sheet 1 bottom paragraph, sheet 2 top paragraph describe the parts. Sheet 4 shows a line drawing of the justification cam with the shoe and stud attached.

I know that this is a shot in the dark. Any help locating these parts will be much appreciated. Thanks!

I can help you with the stud, W3852, I've a few brand new of these, and I'll check my stock of cam shoes. I don't recall having any though I'm afraid. Also I'm UK based so not that helpful for shipping parts to you.
