On the hunt for a machine shop to finish the work on the block. Its been bored and surfaced but it still needs to be honed, cam bearings pressed in, and have the pistons/rods/crank balanced.
Learned alot from this project:
- I hate this shit
- I can't trust anyone (duh, this is always my guiding principal)
- Never again
- If I can't do it with my own 2 hands then it ain't gonna get done
In all seriousness, I'm fairly close to being done. I've wasted a ton of time waiting for people to do stuff that never really gets done, but I wasn't going to work in 100 degree heat anyway to reassemble everything. As long as this stuff gets finished in time for Oct, or whenever it decides to cool off, I'm good.
Edit: I still need to choose a camshaft too.
The three machine shops in town that I've had good experiences with are Endyn, Alamo Autosports, and Watt's shop. Brice at Alamo is probably the best bet out of the three of those for doing something unusual like this. He turned my head around in a couple of days, but turn around time all depends on how busy he is. Endyn does good work, but they take a long time. Watt is a wizard - he's sort of hard to find. If you want but can't find his contact number, pm me.
