TLM in the Netherlands will be cheaper than the US. If you wish I can send you links?

Now I am more confused. I got a reply back from one of the suppliers that says I need the C kit. Worse yet, the chart provided doesn't even show the B kit as an option for the GRiSO motor. What gives?
I have dimple marks on the head and O-ring seal for the spark plug tube on the cam cover. Doesn't that mean I need a B kit?

Update from a different tech there, they now agree I need the B Kit, and have a different chart:

If you have the drill mark in the head you need a 'B' kit.

Just so any GRiSO owners with flat tappet issues won't feel quiet so bad, I thought I'd post this picture of a BMW 1200LC engine with cams made of silly putty, by the looks of it.  Who knows how many improperly hardened camshafts are out there in BMW's liquid cooled boxer engine!!!? Oh, yes, each cam is about $500 US! Two per head. Do the math...ouch![You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
