    Please help me. I need this part on my circuit but the shops is out of stock. Can any of you kindly give the equivalent of those 2 transistor (BC167, BC157). I need it ASAP. Thank you!

    Canada, of course!
    A BC157 was in a metal package and I still have some. A BC557 is the same chip in an epoxy package. I think I still have some BC457 transistors that are in a weird epoxy package.
    I would replace a BC167 with a modern BC547 transistor but check the pins.
