Any leads on single row cam sprockets?

Iíve been able to find kits without the sprockets fairly easily, but I can only find dual row cam gears. Anyone know where to find them? Also wondering what yalls thoughts are on going for aftermarket chain, guides, etc.

Just a question: Why would you want single row cam gears/sprockets when the advice I've seen here is to upgrade to double row?

Because to convert to double row is a LOT more labor, requires pulling the engine, and I donít gave the space for that. Single row is not ďidealĒ, but itís perfectly fine and is pretty straightforward/doable for me.

Can you use a dual row cam sprocket with a single row chain? There must be space between the sprockets on dual row so maybe a single row chain will work with a dual row sprocket. Just thinking out loud.

Nobody gets out of this life alive.
