allright then . all you who live around these parts may be able to help me out . i may be looking to have some machine work done , and going by what i've read and learned , and been told our beloved flatties even require a knowledgable person to machine them . well i was wondering if you know of any one here in the middle of this corn field called illinois in our area ???? those of you from here will know the following , i will not take it to wilkersons shop as the quality of work i have seen come out of there as of late is horrendous !! i know of one fella they screwed up his flatty by running a stud down to far .... then told him the block was cracked . browns seems to know his stuff , but he's fighting cancer and is gone for long periods to do what he should , take care of himself ! so any suggestions ?????????

Kevin - Let me do some asking around. As I recall there's a small shop on the east side but I don't remember the guy's name. I'll get back to you on it. Stu
