What does it usually cost to:
Get a block bored and honed?
Balance a rotating assembly?

In California? i don't Know
In Oklahoma at my shop. 125.00 torque plate bore and hone
150.00 race balance.
It was over $300 at Callies using all new parts for a full internal balance.
It cost $375 for a plate bore and hone in Sacramento at Pashoda's.(SP) I am sure I am way off on the spelling. It was another $150 to square and deck the new block. The cost can vary on how far you have to go and what quality of shop you go to. Also, if they use a sonic test on your cylinders.
Good luck. Al
Next time bring your favorite machinist some beer when you pick up your parts.
not everyone gets the bro deal ya know!
You bring a machinist beer and they will do almost anything for you. That's how it works where I work. The fridge is always full of beer, of all kinds, you have to do some creative rearranging to be able to get anything else in there. Another plus for where I work is there is a brewery right across the street, so they bring us beer all the time.
In the good old days it was 10 bucks a hole.
my local place(glen self racing) charges like 250 for balancing(doesn't include mallory if needed)
then its a 150 for bore with torque plate and sonic testing
100 for line honing
i usually end up spending 500 bucks on each block i've had machined in the last 3yrs, which is a full work over, including letting them go ahead and put the cam bearings in.
