As George noted above, NOS spare. In that, you just have to keep watching and hope one comes up.

Congrats!

I got mine started, ran the new lifters in for twenty minutes, and then set the idle the other day too. A leaking power steering pump is the only thing stopping me from being able to drive it in and out of the workshop now!

Thanks for taking the time to log such an epic build. I had to read it in two goes, such was the inspiration I stopped halfway and spend some time on the little Cortina in my shed.
Well done, I'll keep an eye out for it here in Perth, would love to see it in the flesh.
