Looking for a FE builder?

I have a great block (I think) for building a stroker, but also realize that I do not have the intimate knowledge of these motors to do it. Is there somone in our area that know's how to build these motors that might be interested in helping with a build? I am not really looking for someone to just take it and do it themselves, but rather to provide help in critical aspects.

I just cracked open a stock 360 motor that I found in Oregon that has never been touched. It is a "mirror" 105 with a D3TE code. I would like to punch this out to either a 410 or a 445. Thanks in advance.

This may not be much help, but if you want "intimate" knowledge stroking this block... then sleep with it for a week or so.

...then again, that is how we got to know the M16 well back in the bush.



...and Happy Veteran's Day.

Of course it was not helpful... your thread just sat here with no one responding, was hoping that if it showed a little interest others would chime in. Apparently no one yet has anything that is meaningful to actually help you, but a sense of humor does go a long way.

Rob at Action Machine in north Seattle has done my work for years (20+). He just redid a set of FT 330 heads for me.

I can highly recommend him.
