Go see Craig or Darren at AMS Automotive Machine. The are off Muleberry and Link Ln. They do excellent work and aren't too pricey.

Thanks for the reply!
I just took the block in for maching this a.m. before I saw your post!! The good news is that AMS is where I took it. I was able to talk with craig last week and felt very comfortable having them doing the machine work on it. Now I need to decide if I am going to have the heads rebuilt or buy another set.

So far I have been very impressed with them. I decided to go ahead and get my kit, cam, and timing set from them as well. Darrin felt they were choices and gave me a price that is right in line from Summit. I always try to give local business my money when I can plus I don't have to mess with ordering from telephone or internet or the inverible returns.

Just an update, picked up my block and crank etc last week and everything looks great. They were a little backed up ( had 12 engines at Pinks ) and I was in no hurry so Darrin cc'd my heads and did a mock up to determine exact compression at no charge because of my patience. I have only had a few hours of free time to work on it during the last two weeks so this might be a winter project after all.
I would recomend these guys to anyone in northern colorado!
