I need to have my crank turned and a light hone job done. Anyone have any suggestions for a shop in the so cal area that could take care of me? Im hoping for a pretty quick turn around, found out my bearings were shot in my mill. I am surprised I had any oil pressure at all! Thanks ahead of time.

I used Paul Pfaff in Huntington Beach. That might be farther than you wanted to travel though. :)coffee

Marine Crank in Santa Ana ... (714) 549-2388 ask for Dave

best in the business IMO, they do all of Crower/KB/Bryant's cranks

As Greg said though, Dougan's does a fine job too

Bearings ate it because of debris I am assuming. Didn't have any bottom end knock and oil pressure was good. There had been water in the block at one time as well. The engine was running when I pulled it apart and had been together for quite some time. You got me why the rod bearings look the way they do.



*edit* After looking over the pistons and bearings I have concluded that they were haggard from detonation. When I got the boat it had 38 degrees of initial timing set!!!
