Default Need 305E camshaft,bearings,lifters

Okay so I got some bad news today.I pulled the camshaft cover off my 305E motor today. Found out it has a broken camshaft bearing.After removing the cam noticed it has a flat lobe on the cam.
I may have a hook up on a used cam and lifters reasonable.He also has a complete 305
for $350 that ran when parked.Which doesn't mean anything cause mine ran good no noise,smoke. Wouldn't have known it had any issues if I wouldn't have pulled it to clean it up and change gaskets. I would rather go new if anyone makes one anymore.
Either way I go I need cam bearings for sure.Does anyone know who sells a camshaft,lifters,bearings?
I have gaskets,rings,timing chain all new already bought for this motor so would really like to keep it.
If I can't find parts I'm afraid I may have to put a LS in it that I have already.
Please help me find parts.
Thanks Moscow Mule

Do you need the lifters etc or can you get a machine shop to just grind you up a new shaft? I don't remember exactly, but it seems like you can have them resurfaced or have new ones ground at machine shops if you have the original.

Some people are like slinkys. Not worth much but funny as heck when pushed down stairs.
