machine shop recomendations...

Hey guys i was wondering if yall could give some Machine Shop recomendations.

I bought a 84 351W HO to build and put in my Flareside.. 160 bucks....

and i need it checked and machined and honed. and also want the heads ported and polished. and a 3 angle valve job done.

so i was wondering if yall could give so ideas on good shops to take it to after i tear it down fully.

I wish I could help you. I know some in Roane county but that is not where you need to be.
Good luck I am sure you will get help here. If not PM Torkum. He is busy alot here lately but he is very helpful.

There are some excellent ones there near you.
contact Beans diesel performance and ask them. They are in Woodbury. Or Try Swamps diesel. They will know a good shop or do it them selves I am pretty sure.
They are both super helpful shops.

If you have problems contact me I will contact somebody out there for you.

I talk to Beans fairly regularly if you need help gettin ahold of somebody.

I've been needing to find a machine shop myself.

Also, even though Swamps and Beans are in competition with each other, Swamps has been very helpful everytime I've called them with something stupid lol.

Beans - 615-563-7800
Swamps - 866-595-8724

The guy that Beans uses is really good. He is the one that machined the heads on my 6.0. I can't remember the shop's name that Bean used right off hand, but I'm sure if you called Bean he would be able to help you on that one.

There's one here in the Boro near the square, behind the Napa building, I had them do my cam bearings and correct my head that the guy at Neils mixed up the intake and exhaust springs on.

He fixed my head free of charge, previous owner of my truck had Neal's Cylinder Head rebuild them, they switched the intake and exhaust springs, so when I added a cam, the rotators bottomed out, bending push rods, nice of Daniels cause it wasn't their responsibility, all they did was install cam bearings and my cam. I'm going back to them once I can get a 351, have them do work for me on it.

if any of yall have an engine stand yall dont need any more i might be willing to buy it from one of yall.

need one to start tearing down the 351W HO to get it down to its bare block so i can get it to the machine shop for them to start the machine work.

I'm in no hurry right now, need to get my front components to swap to newer power steering and disc brakes, my engine is good, I want better than a 302.
