    Default Reccomended motor shop?

    I'm in the SE MI area and I'm looking for a shop to clean up (bore, hone) and assemble the bottom end of my 402. I'd prefer a place that has done marine motors before and could lead me in the right direction.

    Suggestions? I'll drive at least 2 hours if I have too.

    I use a place called Shannon's Engine Service in Montrose Mi. They do boring, stress honing, have a crank grinder and also balance everything in house. The guy is a good friend of mine and has been doing machine work for me for over 25 years. 810-639-2033. I usually have them do the machine work and assemble everything myself, but they are reasonable on assembly also.

    I work with a gentleman in Jackson, He works directly with one machinest and does the assembly himself or with you the "student". Very meticulous and has an in house dyno. If interested give him a call.

    Default Machine Shop

    Chap Automotive is who I used. They are @ 2841 Grand Blvd. Detroit 48211, 800-482-2408. Adney is the machinest and you will see him in the Hot Rod Magazines with the horsepower build off competitions. He grinds cranks, rods, etc. and is very affordable on price. I'm sure he does boring and honing too.

    After reading an instructional book, I built my 460 myself and it runs just fine. If your doing a refresh or mainly stock, I wouldn't hesitate on assembling it. These books tell you what to check for as far as machine work, and specs.

    And Adney knew enough to tell me that my 460 marine needed a marine head gasket, so I',m sure he's up on the marine end of it.
