I've always gotten it at NAPA...but I went to the distribution/main center. The local stores probably don't have it in stock but can get it overnight for you.

NAPA and if they dont have it in stock, have them order it. They usually can get it by the next day from their hub.

I had a friend get mine who had an account with NAPA. They always got it to him.

Just to note... That friend also used VR1 in his Fountain Sport Cruiser with Carb HP 500's.

He did a rebuild at 300 hrs just because of the issues with the springs and valves. I saw firsthand how clean those engines were when they were pulled and gone through. I was sold right then and there.
