Shops in WA & OR

Thanks for the welcome...

Just getting ready to pull the engine out of my '71 and send it to the shop for a rebuild. Anybody have suggestions on where to take the 360FE to be rebuilt as a 390? There are a couple shops here in south eastern WA that seem good, but I haven't decided yet.

Let me know if you have any pointers.

Thanks,
BS

Thanks!
Heres a couple pics of my Bronco. I just got it a few weeks ago, it has a half cab conversion, .060 over 460 for 472ci and lots more done to it. I just finished replacing all the brakes, now I'm doing the weatherstripping in the doors. What a PITA thats turning out to be!

Hey BS!

Curious what part of SE WA you're from, and what shops are on your shopping list? IIRC, it's not a big deal to make a 360 into a 390. Again, IIRC, all it takes is a crank kit and a set of pistons and you're good to go. We did that to my dad's '71 F-100 about 30 years ago. That's why I don't remember all the details so good.

Hey Merc,

I'm in the Tri Cities too. When I asked for pointers on shops, I could have spelled it Poynors, for Poynor's Machine in Kennewick. They seem very capable, a little more money than smaller guys, but very solid. They usually have several 390 builds going in thier shop. However, they only build to the long block and don't run it.

HiWay Auto in Prosser also sounds good, but I haven't heard back on an estimate yet. HiWay Auto will fully assembly and also run it on a dyno if you want to pay for it.

In Oregon, Portland Engine ReBuilders has a high torque 390 as a standard off the shelf product. Its a long block, but has a good warrenty. They cost more to assemble, but they know their stuff. HiPro and S&S(new name) in Spokane have similar 390s, but PER sounds like they have a little more expertise with the 390.

Full assembly with a 1 year warrenty (on gasket leaks too) sounds really nice. Its little expensive, but it will save me time and headaches later so I can get to my other projects. Let me know if you have any thoughts.

I know Corey Poynor has a good reputation and has been doing engine work for a long, long time. I don't know anything about HiWay Auto in Prosser, except I thought it was a wrecking yard. Never heard of anyone having an engine built there.

The deal in Portland sounds very interesting, and probably worth a serious look. Building to long block is where all the tricky stuff is. Anyone can take an engine from there and finish it out. It's just manifolds and accessories after that. I guess you'll have to decide how much it's worth it to you to have someone else finish it and to run it on a dyno before installation.

Good luck with your project.

We try to get together and do stuff as a whole, but we are so spread out, and everyone is so danged busy, it doesn't happen often.

There are small groups that manage to meet up from time to time.
